Hello, I would tell you not to worry, that´s the Cert Office paper work, and is being reveiwed several times, always you will have the final ok.
BRC has a guideline: "F033 Guideline for defining wording of scope".
Some short tips:
The scope should include a general outline of the process, the product types and the differentiation of characteristics such as packaging types, storage or shelf life characteristics.
1. The Process
There should be a general outline of the main process, it does not require detail of every step but should provide enough detail so that the typical product characteristics can be understood.
It is suggested using appropriate words from the following (not an exhaustive list):
aseptic filling, baking, battering, blending, bottling, breading, brewing, canning, coating, cooking, conditioning, curing, cutting, dicing, distillation, drying, extrusion, fermentation, filtering, freeze drying, freezing, frying, grading, hot filling, irradiation, marinating, microfiltration, microwaving, milling, mixing, being packed in modified atmosphere, being packed in vacuum packing, packing, pasteurisation, pickling, portioning, refining, ripening, roasting, slaughtering, slicing, smoking, sorting, steaming, sterilisation, washing, waxing
Use of general terms such as ‘manufacture’, ‘production’, ‘preparation’, or ‘processing’ should be used with care but may be acceptable where the resultant products are clear.
Use of the words, for example:
Procurement, intake, receipt, storage, product design and development, handling, storage, dispatch, transport is not required since they are already included within the scope of the Standard and are assessed during the audit.
Use of words such as sales, marketing, trade, growing, distribution and delivery are NOT permitted because these are outside the scope of the Standard.
X ‘Processing of mango and mandarin’ = not acceptable as unclear as to what the ‘process’ is.
ü Acceptable example = ‘Pasteurisation of mango slices and mandarins segments and aseptic filling into glass packaging’
ü Acceptable example = ‘Sorting, grading and packing of mangoes and mandarins’
X ‘Primary production of red and white wines from grape and base wine intake, malolactic fermentation, cold stabilization, blending, storage, filtration to final approved tanks. Secondary processing as carbonation, filling, capping, corking, labelling and packing of red, white and sparkling wines in glass bottles’ = too much detail on sub processes
ü Acceptable example = ‘fermentation, carbonation and filling into glass bottles of red and white wines’
