I am in search of an advice or suggestion. My company, the plant where I am working now, is going to have the first BRC certification in a week (hence mine first one too).
We just installed a metal detector, and though it doesn't specify in the HACCP plan when the product in the process flow needs to be tested, in the flow diagram it is after packaging (I am new in my position with this company, like one month).
The company is packaging raw fish, to be cooked: we do cut the fish, debone it or portion it. Because of floor plan, we decided to test the product for metal inclusion after it is cut and debone and prior to be packaged. I have to mention that we do have a sharps daily inventory inspection, which would be used as a back-up plan if the metal detector is not working properly.
If anyone has a BRC experience similar to mine, can you let me know if that is acceptable for the auditor, or if I have to insist on moving the metal detector after the fish is packed.
I appreciate your help,
