my company is small scale. Sometimes we buy few ingredients (twice in a year) from sams or other super stores (In emergency). I am about to develope exceptional purchasing policy for SQF. Any one have idea how this policy should be? what should i include ?

You can look at covering exceptional purchases with a risk assessment and an extrordinary testing/verification schedule for that purchase such as a decision to positive release any batches made with the material.

I agree with the comments made by Tony - C as I usually use a risk assessment and categorise my suppliers as A & B

A being exceptional with products delivered on time and with no complaints and a history with that supplier
B being a second choice supplier if A does not have the product that you want. there is no real histrory and one needs to conduct testing of their product

i hope this helps.
