Has anyone in the packaging world gone through an audit recently that was under SQF 8.0?  Just curious how the audits are going.

our audit back in January was under 8.0 and it wasn't that bad, we got a minor on the new environmental monitoring element, we had done some testing we just hadn't completed the written program.

Greetings,  Do you mind sharing what you do for the EMP ?  We are a food packaging company. I was going to do a risk assessment but did not plan on swabbing and testing. Thanks for any information you can provide.

I do swabs once a quarter, 4-5 swabs per department (different spots each time), if anything tests positive i swab that area every month for 3 months to see if it reoccurs after sanitizing. 

 

once we figured out how we were going to do our swabbing i then wrote the written procedure around that.

Thank you. Do you swab in any certain zone or just swab in general?

by swabbing in each department I'm hitting each zone as well.

There's a thread where myself and a few others gave some reviews of the first 8.0 audits: http://www.ifsqn.com...cturing-mod-11/

Hi mjaecurry,

 

If you have a browse through the sub-Forum you will see at least 2 notable bugbears -

 

(1) EMP

(2) Vulnerability Assessment

 

Just like food, i suspect :smile:


Kind Regards,
