I have been at this company for 3 weeks and trying to sift through their audit process and how they have them set up. I am starting to get them organized, but I have one particular audit I have found I am at a complete loss and hoping I am just having a hand to forehead moment.
The audit is called, Annual Product and Process Control PRP and here is how it is stated:
Review the following procedures to determine compliance to documented requirements. Review a sampling of records that verify compliance to the requirements. This is a pass/fail evaluation. If not compliant identify why the facility has failed to meet requirements:
-Production Critical process
-Taste, odor, and appearance testing
-Product testing frequency requirements
I asked a few people here for the procedures we are supposed to review and I got a lot of guesses, but no concrete answers.
I feel there is a lot of ambiguity with the questioning in this audit. I can't find any ties to either ISO or our companies standards with what areas we are to look at or anything remotely close to how this is worded.
There is one area, our sensory program, that would deal with the appearance, aroma, and taste.
My assumption is that a Production Critical Process would be something that was identified in our HACCP, and the Product Testing Frequency would deal with our Quality Assurance (lab protocols).
I am wanting to scrap this one and rewrite it to be more clear.
Does anyone have an audit set up like this who can give me some insight on what exactly the person I took over for was looking for?
