We are a small baking operation preparing for SQF certification. We usually conduct our Pre-Op testing including ATP test and generic protein swab test before beginning production on a certain day. We reclean if tests come positive and test again. We do not have a dedicated cleaning staff and our production staff does the cleaning. Some times its creating issues and delaying production.
Since the staff cleans up after production on a certain day, is it acceptable to conduct pre-op testing for next day after they clean up on a certain day. That way they can reclean if tests come out positive and save time the next day. Is it acceptable for SQF certification. Wanted to know your thoughts.
Thanks in advance.
