Hi Sumita,


Yes it is a requirement of SQF 2000 that you have a glass policy and that you maintain a glass register which should also include brittle material including lights on forklifts etc.



I hope that this answers your question.

As always the good Doctor is correct. Specifically this is a pre-requisite program (6.9 Control of Physical Contaminants, and more specifically 6.9.1.2 Glass).

The requirement includes identifying and listing all glass, brittle plastic (particularly acrylic and excluding polycarbonate which is impact resistant), and ceramics) as well as performing regular inspections to ensure all food handling and product contact zones are free of brittle materials.

There is not a requirement to post the glass policy, but employees shold show knowledge of it through interviews. There should be evidence of employee training and evidence the list of items to be monitored is accurate and that those items on the list are being monitored.
