I had a pretty interesting conversation with our QC manager.
The idiot is new, has no food safety experience at all. Was managing transports, and will be facing an audit for the first time for BRC. While I was preparing the fool for the audit, he came up with the following question and then went up to our CEO to justify and implement it.
In BRC food safety clause on page 18 , under internal audit, the last clause says,
His POV: It says inspection , so why does it have to be internal audit team. QC team can do monthly inspections.
When asked about , auditing their own work ...Bang came the reply...." QC is independent of production".
I just left it there.
Would love to hear from the forum what they think of it.
