Hi all,

This particular area has my head spinning.  The standard states: Frequency of checks shall be in accordance with industry-accepted practice or customer requirements and based on risk analysis.

We print labels for food packaging and the occasional food contact packaging, I can not find any information on what is considered industry-accepted practice, and our customers do not have requirements for frequency of quality checks.

Would it be sufficient if I was to conduct a 'generic' risk assessment for this sub-section.  We already have procedures in place (which have been in place for years) for frequency of quality checks during a print run and they have been effective, although I have no documentation as to how we came up with the frequency we currently use and I know BRC loves documentation on EVERYTHING.  

Any suggestions??

Craig

Dear craiglbc,

 

One generic solution is under the 3rd "quote"  / first 2 links of this recent post -

PS - a small amount of creative thought is required but should not be overly difficult.

IMO the repetitive appearance of this RA inserted phrase has simply become a routine a** cover these days with no particular intended objective. Hopefully auditors will agree appropriately.. :smile:


Kind Regards,

 

Charles.C
