Is it necessary to have some kind of product release form or signoff for each step in the production process? Would a product release signoff for the shipping department be sufficient enough? Or do I even need one at all? We're a low risk process ( Food Packaging Manufacturing). If so, does anyone have an example template? Thanks

I dont believe you need any kind of sign off or release form for each step in your process. Your HACCP plan should list each step in the process along with the potential hazards and the pre-requisite control measures. This should be followed up with a thorough record review to verify that your HACCP plan is working. Once this is done a product release sign off to your shipping department should suffice.

In food safety & quality management you more frequently hear the term POSITIVE RELEASE. This is a very specific concept, procedure and policy.

I'm not sure if this is what you are talking about when you say 'PRODUCT RELEASE'?.

Positive release is often seen with high risk products coupled with a specific customer demand for it. You say you have a low risk product so you may not have a need for it on a food safety grounds.
