Greetings all, for those who dont know my rescent posts i work for a small company to which i have been given control of all things BRC and food safety related. YAY i say rescent its been a year now and although im finding my way i still get caught out by something new....
So..... V6 section 6.3 if i am interpretating this correct is that for example:
Scales and temperature probes that are used for monitoring CCP's or related to legality ie Weight of finished product must be calibrated to a recognised standard if one exists.
so my question would be, If my weights are calibrated and my reference probe is calibrated to a UKAS or simular standard externally. is it acceptable to calibrate internaly based on risk from that? do i still need to send each probe /scale off to be individually calibrated to that same standard?
Also Moisture machines - we do not use them for any CCP or legal reasons we just do this as a point for quality. i presume there is no standard for this equipment because it uses temperature and weight which again can be done using the calibrated weights. and temperature is built in to the device. my interpretation would be as above for probes and scales. am i right there?
Lastly Aw machines this is used for final product analysis and is food safety related so i would argue it needs to be calibrated to a standard which is?) and where above id would use a calibrated weight or ref probe does such a thing exist for Aw machines???
Any help here appreciated, i feel the company is throwing money away if im right. which i could put towards buying some new scales and the like....
