Hey everyone,

 

Any suggestion on product design and development checklist? Do you have to have product design checklist on existing equipment that we have been using pre- BRC program? Also, any suggestions on certificates of conformity for equipment (food safe) that we have been using for years? Should I call the companies and have them provide me with letters of conformites?  I conduct daily, weekly, and monthly operational hygiene and structural reports. What does everyone think?

 

 

Thanks!

Breann

Hi Bre,

 

We do sanitary design checklists for new equipment and for any equpiment that needs modifications to it. We have also written to our equipment suppliers for letters of conformity if needed. Some seaches on the web or on goverment sites can help you in aquiring all this information and OFC you always have us to try and lend a hand.

 

Doing a quick search on the net, i found this example of a sanitary design checklist.

The USDA also has a list of accepted food grade equipment

Along with Jpremore's comments, see attached. Besides with contacting equipment suppliers about existing equipment, don't forget to get letters on food contact materials used by your maintenance department. I am assuming you are USDA FSIS inspected, but these should be applicable to both in most cases. May be some redundancy in the articles...

 

I have included a simple check list that my plants use when commissioning new or rebuilt equipment.

Dear KTD,

 

Useful stuff, thks. (Easy to get Engg Dept  to Excel fill in  "OPERATIONS" ? :smile: ?)

 

In Europe, i think EHEDG are one prime resource and offer some voluminous documents.

 

I like yr "OBSOLETING" technique in the Excel document. Very ingenious. :spoton: Almost justifies writing Procedures in Excel.

Kind Regards,

Jpremore and KTD- 

 

Thank you so much for the information. I am glad I told my maintenance manager to get letter's of conformity for us on our existing equipment.  KTD, great documents that you attached. They are very helpful. :happydance:

 

 

Thanks,

 

Bre

I went onto the manufacturers websites and downloaded the brochures / technical specs for all of our equipment.

 

Don't forget to have technical specs for things such as flexi pipes, hopper covers etc

 

I also downloaded the relevant information (food grade, SS 316) for things such as buckets and jugs etc. All new pipe work comes with a letter of conformity from the engineering supplier.On file I also have information regarding our blue gloves, gauntlets etc
