We have a BRC audit coming up next week (Food Safety Issue 8 + gluten Free additional voluntary module)
I was reviewing the standard and in clause 188.8.131.52 it said:
" All CIP equipment shall be designed and constructed to ensure eﬀective operation. This shall include:
where rinse solutions are recovered and reused, an assessment of the risk of cross-contamination (e.g. due to the re-introduction of allergen)."
When I checked with sanitation people they said they sometimes re-use chemicals in the CIP system for oven (depending on their personal judgement whether the chemical can be used for another time or is it "too used")
Now our Risk assessment only contain re-validation for the CIP at a frequency based on risk, and following any alteration or addition.
I am not sure, do we need to include the re-usage of chemicals to prevent allergen cross-contamination or this me reading too much into the clause.
