We are in the process of opening another plant the one we have is FDA and the other one is going to be USDA, and we are trying to get all the documentation ready. Some of the SSOP's can stay the same but some of them need to be changed. What is the best way of going about doing this? How do other companies with multiple sites do it?

The best way that I have seen this happen is to establish "head office" documents - these are documents, forms, policies, procedures that allply to all sites. The next step is to have a 2nd level for specific site based documents. This will save re-inventing the wheel for each and every site that comes under the company banner. If you know about the business systems - this is a fundamental steps in this process.

Head Office or 1st level documents can include policies around supplier management, personal health and hygiene, calibration methods, verification activities. 2nd level documents (or site specific) can include things like cleaning schedules, production scheduling, allergen controls, GMP checklists, site based SOP's.

There is no quick way to go about this process, but I would first look at what you already have, what you need for the new site and then go ahead and fill the gaps.

Hope this helps
