Hello!

 

I created a label verification page in which the team will put the label on the paper and some other details and turn it into me daily. My question is, we have a lot of paper that are used once (invoices mainly) and we keep it for notes or any internal papers. Do you think I can print my verification on the other side of the used paper? Would an auditor give me an issue? The reason I would like to do this, is because we print many different labels a day and if I already have a lot of recycled paper, I can in a way save money by not printing on normal paper.  We would use about 8 pages of label verification each day unfortunately due to the size of our labels and also how many different products we package. These are also labels we print in house.

Just use a fat sharpie, draw a diagonal line through the contents and then place your labels on.....this should not be an issue!


Because we always have is never an appropriate response!

While I too appreciate all recycling efforts, I don't think this would be the appropriate time to do so.

 

2.2.3.2 All records shall be legible and suitably authorized by those undertaking monitoring activities that demonstrate inspections, analyses, and other essential activities have been completed.

 

In with this issue of document control and records in mind, what if a company for which you are private labeling comes to inspect your records of their production of the last year... and their label is on a recycled invoice from a competitor? The chance of this happening may be rather minuscule, but the practice itself lends the inspector (whether company, auditor, regulator, other) to think that this only scratches the surface of violating privacy issues.

 

I would not do it.

So the labels are our labels for our product. The invoice is a customer invoice that we use internally to make sure the order gets made.
