I am trying to create a raw material evaluation form for when we switch between different materials. We already  have a supplier approval form but need to document the preapproval process of why we are switching materials. Any help with this?

I capture things like this by approving the new supplier (thus the material and the new specification) and keeping a "QA Change Log" where I document significant events like equipment installations or process/ingredient changes, the justification for the the change, and when it occurred.

I had seen where you would compare the current material to the prospected material. Or would you not get into that much detail?

Having both the old specification and new specification in my records demonstrates we had the ability to do so. The "justification" section and subsequent daily production checks verify that the new material performed at the same standard.

 

Definitely depends on auditor as to how formal this process needs to be.
