And I see that for M&CA, you use supplier spec.
Actually “A” is a bit more expanded. But maybe not relevant yr set-up.
For M,C - Yes because there is usually no real-time tests available except for visual inspection (ie P).
Some factories sample / monitor things like thickness, artwork details, etc but these are non-haccp
personally, MEX is mostly with simpler packaging than yours so I hv used a "blanket" generic "food grade" specification (eg USA CFR sections) within a preliminary intro to the individual haccp
plans (plus the style in my excel sheet). This partially avoids auditor nit-pickings into details. Not sure is possible for yr type of packaging though.
Metallised plastic not really my product area so I don’t know much but most “simple” plastic packaging is manufactured at high temps so eliminating micro. risk (assuming subsequent GMP is maintained).
Also, in many locations, the final customer (for his own legal protection) requires copies of official certification
guaranteeing the intrinsic packaging safety. This may involve data from the user (ie you) / bag manufacturer / plastic supplier. The full details are typically defined by the customer’s regulations / yr local regulations, and can vary of course. The latter should be your packaging provider’s job really but I agree that in many cases I hv had to get the testing requirements for them and occasionally organise it myself (they tend to be suspicious that competitors are involved).
The supplier for this packaging is part of our group company (but didn't include with our ISO 22k system).
So no supplier audit data ? Nice auditor
How about solvent? eventhough it's not include in specification, should I mention in hazard identification?
The more meaningful question is probably “should it have been included in the specification”.
Should pass onto the packaging experts here, AND maybe yr in-house provider.
PS My curiosity again
. Did you design a similar 18.104.22.168 response in yr ISO 22000 system to my excel sheet layout or did you simply list/locate/give values of the most haccp
control measures, ie not including / detailing all the PRP-related stuff.
