Chemicals are being bought onto site for trialing without Technical knowledge....... surely we should know about it so we can keep a log of the dates etc just in case there is any trends with issue from micro etc.

I agree with you 100%.

 

A trial cleaning chemical needs to be fully documented (inc COSHH), it needs to be stored appropriately, locked and bunded and as you say, it needs to be validated in place.  I've learned through bitter experience not to trust the tests the suppliers do on their chemicals as they're not real world situations.

Another thought, if you're M&S supplier, you need to check they're approved and on their A list.  Also you may need to consider the risks of product contamination (particularly with QAC MRLs etc.)

If I find it,  our corrective action program kicks in.  They get tired of filling out corrective action forms so now they just tell me when they want to do a test.  In our case, they wanted to do the right thing, but needed harsh reminders.
