I have been trying to educate myself about the logistics of creating a Skip Lot sampling plan. This is in reference to a company that makes some personal care products and some dry mix formulations for energy drinks.
We get tons of raw material in, some formulation are complicated.
We are currently sending out samples for micro testing on every single lot that comes in. The first test for each lot includes ID testing. I have found quite a bit of information, but It is an entire discipline in itself. I am just easing in to details on AQL tables when I felt my brain start to melt down a bit....
I have a flow chart (I borrowed from an FDA site) and other attributes dictating the path of approval to initiate skip lot testing.. but as I start to read over matters relative to AQL I'm not sure I am going the right direction any more.
Do any of you institute Skip lot testing specifically for Micro?
Could any of you share or point me toward a generic SOP for this to highlight a fully approved (FDA, SQF level 2) Skip Lot Program?
If so It would be greatly appreciated and if you are ever in the Utah area I will personally buy you a Chicken-pot-pie and a cold beer of your choice.....
