Hi all,


I have a question regarding the change from low-risk area to high-care area.


Currently we are in a start-up fase of our new production plant. We are specialized in the packaging of butter in small portions and slicing/grating of cheeses (note: we do not make butter or cheeses ourselves).

The raw materials start in a low-risk area, but at a certain moment the raw materials will be transfered to a high-care area where it will be processed. After processing the endproducts will be moved back to the low-risk area.


Personnel must do a change-over with clothing and is using a hand washing & disinfection step and bootwash by entering the high-care area. Only by moving the raw materials / endproducts back and forth between the 2 zones this is not possbile (using a overhead door and pallet truck).


Any ideas how to fix or control these movements? Any similar experiences?


Thank you!

Hello Lisanne,


Pallet truck can't be used in low-risk to high care area vise versa. A pass through can be used as long as the direction of the air must be coming from high-care to low risk area.The auditor will check the air direction during audit.
