Hello, can somebody to help me with these terms ?

1.rework ( IFS ver. 6, BRC ver. 6)

2. reprocess ( IFS ver. 6)

3. recycle ( BRC ver. 6)




Where I can find defined the differences on these terms?
Especially between 1. and 2.? Any of the standards does not explain it.

Dear Maria,

I suspect that numerous definitions will exist for the words you mention. I also can not see any definitions in BRC standard.

You don’t mention any specific paragraphs in the standards mentioned however, from Google so not specifically for food or BRC/IFS, I found a "FDA" response –

rework / reprocess -

Reprocessing is taking a material (in-spec or out-of-spec) and reintroducing it to an existing (validated) process.

Reworking is taking an out-of-spec product and running it through a non-standard process to bring it back into spec. Concurrent validation is required.

Must add that i hv myself certainly seen "reprocessed" also used within the above definition of "rework" and vice-versa.

Recycle is IMO rather different. One possible interpretation is –

Recycling is processing used materials (waste) into new products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials, reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, reduce energy usage, reduce air pollution (from incineration) and water pollution (from landfilling) by reducing the need for "conventional" waste disposal, and lower greenhouse gas emissions as compared to virgin production

Thank you very much :smile:. But I am thinking, that recycling in food industry is this:

Dear Maria,

From a purely semantic-English language point-of-view I agree with you. :smile:

However the specific usage in yr original question might still depend on yr local requirements / actual (even if undefined) standards.
