Good morning.  We are a very small packaging manufacturer company and the same seven people make-up our Food Safety Team, Management Team, and HACCP Team.  Our HACCP Team meets quarterly but the other two meet monthly.  My question is; is it necessary to have two separate meetings with two separate forms or can we combine the meetings?  :uhm:

You can have combined meetings , as long as you document it (meeting minutes) appropriately that issues related to HACCP, Food Safety and Management were discussed. If you would like to go in this direction, make sure your related policy/program are showing the same frequency.

One thing to add - document the fact that you changed over to combo meetings, as to what date, etc and hold this document with your procedures for meetings, etc  - that way, you don't get an Auditor doing a rabbit hole investigation.


Warm regards,

Great advice!!  We had our first external audit in Feb of this year and that was a nerve racking mess.
