Background: BRC certified food manufacturing facility producing shelf stable products

 

According to https://www.accessda....cfm?fr=117.305

 

"Records must: (1) Information adequate to identify the plant or facility (e.g., the name, and when necessary, the location of the plant or facility)"

 

We have hundreds of documents covering everything under the sun, am I to understand that these need to have my facility name and address on each one?

 

What exactly constitutes a "record that must be established and maintained" ? Just the food safety plan or all documentation associated with prerequisite programs, food safety plan, etc.? 

 

Any insight would be appreciated!

 

Thanks!

Any record FDA would reasonably expect you to have :). But mainly primary production records detailing critical food safety plan and traceability information.

 

 

am I to understand that these need to have my facility name and address on each one?

 

 

No, your records must include Information adequate to identify the plant or facility (e.g., the name, and when necessary, the location of the plant or facility)"

 

Does you plant have only one location? Then listing the location isn't necessary.

 

Information adequate to identify can be a code, letterhead, or box that someone checks. The point of the requirement is that someone is able to look at the record and know what company and location it belongs to.

All of my records have the company name in the header (only 1 location) that should suffice I would think---if more than 1 location include est # or city 


Because we always have is never an appropriate response!

Training records (i.e Food Defense training for employees) should also indicate facility location - for multiple plant sites I have seen a stamp made for each site so that the same training document can be used and then stamped when the record is graded.
