Dear establish200,

have you tried searching the forum for "BRC gap analysis" (including the " ")?

I don't think it would be hard to knock something up yourself. Why not take each clause of BRC then put it into a spreadsheet, then for each clause audit and look for evidence (and keep that evidence in a file) so have a column for that and a column for gaps. You'll then have all your references sorted for your quality manual if you don't have one already and also have built up a file of evidence ready for the BRC audit when you have one.

Dear GMO,

:o

You obviously do not subscribe to the "minimisation of work" axiom. Surprising for a UK inhabitant. Or perhaps you are a member of the anti-TV brigade. :biggrin:

Nah, I'm a perfectionist but British through and through and my 9 month old has never seen the TV on so perhaps I'm the latter.

This ties in directly to the question recently posted in the HACCP forum. I have successfully used a (Excel) spreadsheet almost exactly as discussed by GMO. Yes, there is a time load on the front end, but then, you should only have to revise when the corresponding standard is updated. Documented properly, this can also function as your internal audit...

Anish, great checklist. Could you please add it to the new file downloads library. I'm trying to get the new library off the ground and this would be perfect in the audit checklist category.

No bother if you don't want to, if you need help let me know.

Thanks,

Dear Anish,

It is a good idea and must have taken a lot of work but describing as "based" on the cGMP 21 CFR 110 is a little debatable. :smile:

eg here is original for 10b3 -

Washing hands thoroughly (and sanitizing if necessary to protect against contamination with undesirable microorganisms) in an adequate hand-washing facility before starting work, after each absence from the work station, and at any other time when the hands may have become soiled or contaminated.


and original 10b4 -

Removing all unsecured jewelry and other objects that might fall into food, equipment, or containers, and removing hand jewelry that cannot be adequately sanitized during periods in which food is manipulated by hand. If such hand jewelry cannot be removed, it may be covered by material which can be maintained in an intact, clean, and sanitary condition and which effectively protects against the contamination by these objects of the food, food-contact surfaces, or food-packaging materials.


With all due respect, some of the the missing pieces in checklist/10b3 are IMO of considerable importance.( Section 14 IMO should hv specifically spelled out the missing bits earlier due to their importance, eg "after each absence from the work station" includes visiting the toilet).

checklist/10b4 seems to be not in agreement with tolerances in above.

I appreciate you have adapted the requirements to local regulations and had to condense but ...... :smile:

Nonetheless, the format concept presented is certainly valuable. :thumbup:

Here is a checklist based on Issue 5 Food Safety.
I took liberty rewording some of the clauses to make them more YES/NO friendly and shortened some clauses without eliminating the intent.
Your entry in the "Compliance" column will change cell color for a quick visual representation of where you are or are not compliant.
This should be used with the standard and the implementation guide to ensure all the bases are covered.

Great document, thanks for sharing. Two comments:

1. Why is section 6.3.3 mysteriously empty?
2. Would it be possibe for you to add the file to our downloads library, it's new and we're trying to build it up. And this document is just great for the library.

Not sure why. I will upload the corrected version to the library.

I'll attach the corrected version here as well. I've made a couple of minor changes to the original.
