Good Morning all,
In the company I work for, we are preparing to seek SQF certification. In the last couple of months we have been working in updating procedures and all documentation.
Recently the Plant Manager who is also our COO, asked that he need to have a policy that will says he will approve any product discard. On the quality department we are concerned he wants to do this to have control over what can be rejected and what can be still used.
I am wondering if I can find any where in writing as part of food safety or SQF that this kind of decisions belongs to the Quality Manager / or Food Safety Manager, since the fact that a person from production will have conflict of interest in making this kind of decisions.
Thank you very much in advance,
