Dear Ahmedmourad,

 

yes. There is a requirement under the clause 4.5.2

 

under the clause there is a need to develop schematic diagram of the water distribution system, including all holding tanks, water treatment and water recycling.

the above diagram with respect to site, shall be used as basis for water sampling and management of overall water quality.

 

but in version 6, there is a requirement for water distribution system plan only ( may or may not be a schematic diagram showing the plan)

 

 

Regards

 

Satya

The BRC v7 looks to be highlighting requirements that are similar to the Private Water Supply Regulations in the UK. The Tesco TFMS in the UK was already geared in that way - so looks like the BRC has taken influence from that.

Thus far BRC has been ok with and basic outline of the plant, then including city/well water inputs, softeners, boilers, and hot/cold water lines all done in word.  I have also included hose stations and back flow preventers. I update revisions when construction is done.

Ahmed, may I suggest you upload your BRC 6 compliant diagram and then members may be able to assist you in adapting it.

Hi ahmedmourad,

 

GLOBAL STANDARD FOOD SAFETY ISSUE 7 INTERPRETATION GUIDELINE
4.5.2 Interpretation Water distribution
The aim of this requirement is to identify the key components of the water distribution system.
A fully detailed architect’s diagram showing complete pipework is not required; a general plan, map or schematic diagram will be sufficient. The plan should enable the site management and auditor to assess potential hazards in the distribution system and ensure that adequate management systems are in place to negate the hazard. Water holding tanks, for example, may present a microbiological hazard if not covered or if water low is not controlled to prevent water pooling in areas out of the low.

 

Your diagram looks fine. I presume the thin green line is mains water supply to the water tanks? perhaps you want to label that. I see a low risk area marked up, is there a high risk area?

 

Regards,

 

Tony
