Hi All:

 

I am preparing for a third party audit next week (My company is a food supplier). Below are requirements by a third party audit in regards to equipment/facility maintenance.

 

Does anyone has  a generic written program with procedures covers these requirements? Your input is highly appriciated.

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 

 

A written system is in place that allows any employee to inform maintenance about work requests. There is a documented process for creating, tracking and completion of maintenance requests and it can be matched to the work orders.

 Documented procedures address how the facility will protect product when breakdowns occur and/or repairs are made in product zones. Procedures describe product disposition when affected by maintenance activities.

Written guidelines are established to ensure tool and parts control when repairs are taking place during production. The guidelines should include proper placement of tools and parts and should address tools used in raw areas versus finished product areas.

 

A program should be in place that describes how maintenance will handle tools and equipment when repairs are being made during production, including how tools are inventoried and handled in raw vs. finished areas to protect products and avoid potential cross contamination from maintenance activities.

Procedures are developed that describe the sanitation activities that occur after equipment has undergone repairs, including sanitation responsibility and verification of its completion. Records are kept showing sanitation was completed, as required by procedure.

The maintenance program ensures that all outside contractors working in food areas are aware of and have signed a copy of the facility GMPs. Documents are available for review.

Thanks in advance

Dear Food safety,

 

Could you inform if the OP is extracted from any particular standard ? It may promote more directly relevant responses.
