I need your help please .
I completed my BRC audit last month and The auditor give us a NC for clause 1.1.6- this is what she wrote:
-1.1.6 Even though site is kept aware of changes on regulation through subscription to website of CFIA, registered into My BRC participation, and kept update from their clients to comply with country-destination regulation, it was noted when interviewing the staff, that there was not objective evidence on how the site were kept aware of upcoming changes on FSMA regulation in USA, while USA was one country destination or about changes in labelling regulation in Canada to demonstrate if their site will be affected or not. FDA website was not included in the list in the regulation section in the quality manual version 2016.
My corrective action was:
We included the web site of the FDA and the Canadian label regulations web site in the Quality Manuel, Regulation section 1.1.6 page 17
Quality Assurance was on the FDA web site to receive e-mail alerts. Although it was not documented in the Quality Manuel
Seafood are exempt from FSMA because we are under FDA HACCP regulations.
Preventive action: The company is subscribed on the FDA web site, to receive important FDA news and information as they become available. Will receive email notifications.
Quality Assurance is subscribed to e-mail notifications for Canadian labelling regulations.
For compliance with regulation, a) please clarify which is the plan to comply with FSMA and which are your deadlines according regulation, b) what about upcoming changes in Canada labelling regulations, how this will affect or not your site?, how the site will be prepared?
