Hey,

 

please can anyone help me to implement section 11.7.5 

 

I created a  glass & Brittle plastic SOP

 

i created a register of all our glass and plastic, with risk assessment  

 

i created an audit checklist form  based on the risk assessment 

 

i created a wooden pallet  policy 

 

i created a control program for our knives and cutting instruments

 

please let me know if i still missing other documents 

 

thank you

Hi Maria,

 

Additional items in 11.7.5:

 

11.7.5.2 Inspections shall be performed to ensure plant and equipment remains in good condition and potential contaminants have not detached or become damaged or deteriorated.

Guidance:
The protocol shall include removal of all tools and machine parts from the processing areas when maintenance has been completed (refer 11.2.9.2 v1)
The risk assessment of foreign material contamination and preventative controls shall be included within the food safety plan (2.4.3) and food quality plan (2.4.4) development. Each site must assess its risks of foreign material contamination to product and develop specific controls within its environment.

 

Kind regards,

 

Tony

Hi Maria,

 

Yes and I would put any high risk items on plant/equipment start up checks.

 

Kind regards,

Not got experience with SQF but I've found an increasing expectation from 3rd party and retailer auditors that damage to coloured hard and soft plastics will be detected and resolved quickly.  M&S in the UK are the ones which go further than others but there is one really good idea they have in one of their COP that spares must be retained on site for things like plastic scoops, belts etc.  This is completely logical because how many times have you encountered a utensil or belt which is damaged to be told "we have none in stock"?  I just thought it's a really nice idea.

Hey Tony,

yeah i put all  high risk items  on plant/equipment start up checks because they need to be check daily 

based on a risk assessment i will determine if they are CCPs so i can include them on our production flow chart 

 

thank you for your support
