Hi everyone,

I'm a little nervous because my company has their first AIB audit and not a lot of written procedures for a food facility because I have been here two weeks.


Does anyone have an example of written standards so I can see a format to begin with.  A lot to do within two weeks!!!


Plus I just ordered the AIB HACCP class on line. 


Nice to meet everyone,

First :welcome: !!


As to help we are going to need a WHOLE lot more information, such as what you make and what you need.  Most of us spend years honing our systems and they are specific to our plants and processes.  We can guide you and provide you with a lot of information but need a start point. 


First important information.....just keep breathing!

:welcome: to both of you.  It's always a pleasure to have new members!  Just don't forget to come back  :lol2:


Like the well revered Snookie said we really need some information like your product for starters. Do you make RTE food, food to be cooked, an ingredient, packaging, etc.?


Do you have a HACCP plan(s) and at least one HACCP trained member at your location?


Have you downloaded the standard relevant to you from AIB? If not find it here: http://www.aibonline...-standards.aspx

Hi Elsa, welcome.  Mexican food is very popular where I live.  We have a lot of Hispanic and Mexican workers in this area.


Hi Marta.  I know how you feel, I came from an occupational safety background and jumped into food safety this past January.  I have found that writing programs/plans is pretty much the same no matter what it is for.  Just decide what is the purpose for the plan, who is responsible for what, and what tasks you want people to do, and put it on paper.  The format is less important than the content.  Making things clear and more like a roadmap works better than writing everything in legalese.  Make a plan or procedure for everything important that is required by the standard or is crucial for your product safety and quality.


And, if you have questions, don't forget to post them in the forums here.  This is a great group of people who have helped me out quite a bit.
