188.8.131.52 On-site personnel that conduct environmental or product testing shall participate in an applicable proficiency testing program at least annually to ensure accuracy of results.
Finishing up some last minute edits (why didn't they ask me sooner?) for a client of mine (across the country)... how is everyone satisfying the requirements of this section? They are low risk raw meat and poultry (ground and not ground) and do the following tests:
Neogen Reveal for E.coli O157:H7
Neogen Reveal for Salmonella spp
QT10 strips for quat PPM
Hygiena ATP swabs
Colorimeter testing for PAA concentration in an intervention cabinet
Can I prepare a paper review and exam for them utilizing the user manuals, or do I actually need to find a class or process authority to do so?
