Good morning all, 

 

I had my SQF audit couple weeks ago and I'm struguling with this document. We got a minor because my facility does not have a documented program for the purchase, installation, specification and commissioning of new equipment. 

Could you please help me out? Guide me on how to put together this policy/document, I would appreciate so very much. I  didn't slack on getting my corrective actions together it just happened that week an a half after the FDA showed up and we had another very stressful audit.

 

Thank you in advance for reading my posting.

 

Sincerely, 

 

Karla

Karla - search the forums for "Management of Change" - you'll find many helpful topics and documents.

Can try this related thread -

 

https://www.ifsqn.co...ctive-clothing/

(esp. post 2, and  also post 2 of the sub-link)

 

There is also a voluminous amount of suggestions in the SQF Guidance material, seemingly out-of-proportion to what auditors actually expect. :smile:


Kind Regards,

karla

see the link below.  you could create your own form based off of this form.   when purchasing equipment you would verify that it complies with this form.  when commissioned the form could be used as well.   I also attached a sample procedure and form.

Also search under COMMISSIONING of equipment.  it will list things to consider when purchasing, things after installation, i.e. cleaning, maintenance schedules, HACCP implications, glass registers, audit programs.
