Okay heres a brief way to develop an SOP, and comply with the SQF code
- What? (What is your SOP about? Purpose?)
- Who? (List who is responsible for what)
- When? (Frequency of tasks, duties, how often each item is carried out)
- Procedure (list all your steps that needed to be conducted).
From the SQF code for dry, and liquid waste disposal:
11.9.1 Dry and Liquid Waste Disposal
126.96.36.199 The responsibility and methods used to collect and handle dry, wet and liquid waste and store prior to
removal from the premises shall be documented and implemented. (This is your WHO and procedure)
188.8.131.52 Waste shall be removed on a regular basis and not build up in food handling or processing areas. (This is in your procedure, you must state this as well as IMPLEMENT IT).
Designated waste accumulation areas shall be maintained in a clean and tidy condition until external waste
collection is undertaken. ( Again in your procedure state this and IMPLEMENT IT).
184.108.40.206 Trolleys, vehicles waste disposal equipment, collection bins and storage areas shall be maintained in a
