I'm a grain processor and we are being asked for the same type of document. We purchase all our grains direct from the farmers and do testing several times prior to receipt to confirm quality. I'm not sure what type of fraud could be executed on our bulk products but I'd like some insight on how draft a statement. We are HACCP certified.
So we are not BRC or 22000 certified but our customers are and they are pushing back on us to provide assurances on vulneratibility and threat to fraud.
The members of this forum have offered some useful ideas and in particular the PWC and the is an excel TACCP assessment too. The TACCP assessment we found useful and I followed this through. Then with the customer service team we have produced a statement based on this assessment and also the types of questions we get in questionairres.
I can't provide a copy of this because it contains information I don't want to circulate to such a large audience but essentially we broke it down into;
Context - the product, how it is used
Supply Chain - no of steps (raw material suply, production, storage, distibution etc)
Raw Materials - supplier location, supplier relationship, supplier approval, testing
Registrations - ISO9001, FAM-QS, EFfCI etc
Personnel - training, ratio of permanent to temporary etc
Manufacturing controls - HACCP, closed process etc
Storage and transport - transport approval, security during transport etc
Now we are waiting to see if this satisfy the requirement, but we can also show the completed TACCP assessment.
I hope that is of some use.
