Hi, I am new to BRC (worked with ISO 22000 and SQF).
I've always been exposed to the practice of obtainng product samples from beginning, middle, and end; or beginning, every 20th product, and end.
Is there a specific requirement with BRC in terms of sampling? Or any sampling guideline we can use as a reference?
My current company's protocol is to sample beginning, and then 2 hours later (even thoug it may be a 10 hour run). I feel that it is not a representative of the entire lot of products. However, if we take more samples, yes we can a better representation of the run, but we will get into issues such as more product wasted (for sampling), delayed testing (as we need to wait until end of the run), and delayed product release.
Any reference/guideline I can use to push forward a better sampling protocol?
