Hi guys,

 

 

I have a question regarding section 7.9 Traceability system of ISO 22000. What does this statement means?

 

"Records shall be in accordance with statutory and regulatory requirements and customer requirements and may, for example, be based on the end product lot identification"

 

I don't really get it.

Traceability is a mechanism to trace the product flow in supply chain and production. It's generally considered as crisis management tool to quickly trace the affected products  when there is an incident of the foodborne outbreak. The complexity of the traceability various from industry to industry. However,  ideally one shall information of products flow-  one step  forward and one step backward.

Hi mary joan,

 

All the FS Standards can be quite mystical at times.

 

Is this re-write more intelligible ? -

 

7.9 Traceability system
The organization has established and applied a traceability system that enables the identification of product lots and their relation to batches of raw materials, processing and delivery records. The traceability system is able to identify incoming material from the immediate suppliers and the initial distribution routes of the end product.
 
Traceability records are maintained for a defined period for system assessment to enable the handing of potentially unsafe products and in the event of products withdrawal. Records on the end product lot identification are maintained in accordance with statutory and regulatory requirements and customer requirements.

 

And this auditorial interpretation -

 

A traceability system is mandatory in ISO 22000 but happens to be a common process in the food industry, often as a result of legislation. The auditor should check the batch and/or lot identification in records maintained throughout the process from material receipt to end product dispatch. Note that the organization needs to define a retention period for traceability records which is related to system assessment and considers the implications for disposition of potentially unsafe products and product withdrawal.

Hi charles,

 

 

Do you know where I could find an auditorial interpretation of ISO 22000 standards? 

 

Really sucks to interpret all these clauses without reference.

Hi mary joan,

 

Smart question. :smile:

 

Previous quote came from, I think, the 1st attachment in this early  iso22000 thread/post. You will note the rather "narrow" comments regarding OPRPs. -
