Hi,

I am new to this forum. I plan to conduct supplier audit for primary and secondary packaging used.
Primary packaging is food contact LDPE roll. Secondary packaging is RSC and die cut carton.
Do anyone of you have packaging audit checklist or questionnaires? I need guidelines to establish audit checklist or qeustionnaire.

Hi Eray,

I'm sure some members will post examples, but I would advise using the BRC/IOP Packaging Standard. The standard includes requirements for both direct and non direct packaging suppliers. It is the most relevant and recognised standard for packaging.

Hi Eray
As Simon has advised the BRC standard is good.
But also look at the "AIB Consolidated Standards for Inspection" - "Food Contact Packaging" and "Nonfood Contact Packaging". www.aibonline.org
Both the BRC and AIB checklists are very good, but you may also need to add your own requirements for Food Safety Compliance documents (FDA/EU etc), for all the raw materials used to make the packaging item, and in the case of flexible film, the final product.
Also check GMP, HACCP, Pathogen Testing/Management, etc are included. In New Zealand we also refer to the NZFSA Model Pathogen Management Programme - http://www.nzfsa.gov...del/page-01.htm It's design for Food Manufacturing, but you can take the parts that you feel are relevant to your Primary Packaging Vendors.
Primary / Food Contact Packaging, should be made and packed in a Hygiene Room / area. This may not always be the case unless the vendor has recently rebuilt their plant or moved to a new green fields site, and built in a Hygiene room / Redline controls as outlined in a Pathogen Management programme.
There maybe something similar in your own country regs etc, but you can use this model from the NZFSA web site and taylor to your own requirements.

Hi Peter,

Thanks for your advise and useful info. I will refer to those guidelines from BRC, AIB, NZFSA and my country regulations to develop the audit checklist.

Thanks very much for your input Peter. My answer was a little lightweight and your reply added some much needed meat to the bones. :smile:
