Hi Natalie,

 

Here below is just a very small sampling of required procedures taken directly from the IFS Food

Standard for auditing quality and food safety of food products version 6 from 2014. I used a “control F” search using the word “procedures” as a search term within the document. The document is available in French language from the IFS website.

 

All processes and procedures shall be clear, concise and unambiguous

and the personnel responsible shall understand the principles of the

quality and food safety management system.

5.9.2 Procedure for withdrawal and recall

1.3.1 A documented procedure shall be in place to identify fundamental

needs and expectations of customers.

2.1.1.2 A documented procedure shall exist for the control of documents

and their amendments.

2.2.3.8.1 KO N° 2: Specific monitoring procedures shall be established

for each CCP to detect any loss of control at that CCP. Records

of monitoring shall be maintained for a relevant period. Each

defined CCP shall be under control. Monitoring and control

of each CCP shall be demonstrated by records. The records

shall specify the person responsible as well as the date and

result of the monitoring activities.

 

Cordialement,

 

Greg

Dear Tharinduth,

 

KO 2.2.3.8.1 is saying:

If you have identified CCPs, you have to set up a monitoring plan (checks).

Checks need to be recorded. The records include date, time, result of the check and name of person who checked it.

 

Limits have to be set. Corrective actions need to be set in case the limits are exceeded.

If corrective action was needed. This need to be documented.

 

Does this make it more clear to you?

I suspect Post 5 is seeking specific examples.

 

Tharinduth ?

 

It's a one-year old thread which probably never got a relevant answer.

Hi Charles,

 

Thank you for understanding. Yes I need specific answers. Why IFS specially pointed out this requirement?
