Hi all,

 

Looking for a bit of guidance.

 

"Substandard trademarked materials shall be rendered unusable through a destructive process. All materials disposed of shall be recorded"

 

We are considering an in-house destructive process to render materials unusable but it's the second part of the clause that has me asking (the possibly daft) question. 

We currently send this waste off site to a third party and get certificates of destruction for the weights. 

Where it says all materials shall be recorded., what level would we be expected to go to if carrying out this activity on site?  Is weight enough or would the auditor expect product details to be recorded?

 

This would be a logistical nightmare with multi product waste being disposed of on an ongoing basis from the production lines.  

 

Advice very welcome

Hi ISOKirst,

 

There is never a daft question!

 

Could this not be recorded on the paperwork for each batch / run of product by every production line (weight or quantity)?

 

The simplest way I would do it would be to add a line on the production paperwork 'Packaging Waste: _____kgs / qty' which would be completed after the production run of that batch. Follow it up within a procedure and some training in production.

 

To me this may also help with any waste packaging assessments and mass balances.

 

Thanks

QS

What is your product and what is the method of disposal?

Hi ISOKirst,

 

Is it possible to list which batches, or even days of production are included in the destroyed batch?
