In the manufacture facilities where I work there are about 12 companies and we share, among other things, the storage area. According to the SQF Code we can certify ourselves excluding some areas of the building. The problem would be that some areas cannot be excluded since we all used them, including the receiving and storage area.
El SQF says:
1. The methods implemented to ensure only authorized personnel have access to production equipment and vehicles, manufacturing and storage areas through designated access points;
2. The measures taken to ensure the secure receipt and storage of raw materials, packaging, equipment and hazardous chemicals.
3. The measures implemented to ensure raw materials, ingredients, packaging materials, work-in progress, process inputs and finished products are held under secure storage and transportation conditions.
For my understanding to complain with SQF Code, in this area, we would have to isolate our product in some way from the other companies. Possibly build a room and secure it with a padlock.
Do you think that my interpretation is correct and the implementation, previously mentioned, is viable???????????
