I want to ask about following FSSC 22000 clause :
The organization shall implement a system to assure that analysis of all inputs critical to
the verification of product safety is undertaken. The analyses shall be performed
according to ISO 17025 or equivalent. Equivalent systems shall include at least
participation to proficiency testing).
The Question is :
Currently, my lab is just a part of QC department of food factory and do not take ISO 17025 accreditation. In my current understanding of above clause, we need to make sure that the analysis result is reliable, so we need to use validated method, calibrated instrument, etc.
a. Now, how about things like organization structure, document control system, material purchasing procedure, etc? These things have been managed in our FSSC 22000 management system, so do we need to create a new one for laboratory?
b. Do we need to create the ISO 17025 manual? or we just need to make SOPs that can comply both ISO 17025 and FSSC 22000?
In summary, what is the extent of ISO 17025 implementation in FSSC 22000?
Thank you very much
