Hi there ~
I didn't see this topic posted anywhere, but does your company have laboratory personnel help with final ingredient/product evaluation and release product? Would there need to be separation between 1) folks who perform laboratory testing and 2) those who determine whether specifications are met and release the product? What are your thoughts on how many "eyes" on the ingredient/product are enough?
We currently have two persons evaluate each ingredient and product to determine whether specifications are met and release product. Those workers are almost always entirely separate and independent from those who perform the laboratory testing. Is that separation necessary?
