Hi

 

With reference to my topic- Hazard and risk assessment analysis- Clause 2.2.2

 

The hazard and risk analysis team shall maintain awareness of and take into account:
• historical and known hazards associated with specifi c processes, raw materials or intended use of
the product (where known)
• known likely product defects that affect safety or quality
• relevant codes of practice or recognised guidelines
• legislative requirements.

 

May you kindly breakdown the above clause as I am failing to understand how to I can write  a procedure regarding this clause. We manufacture self adhesive labels and are in the basic hygiene category as this is secondary packaging. May kindly assist with further clarification and a template to those in the same industry.

 

Regards

 

Mary

In your case, I would consider the glue used in the adhesive, and risk assess the chemicals of the glue and any possible adverse affects to the food by possible migration. Also, would consider the ink on your labels for the same things.

 

You'd also want to include any test reports in your assessment to show the labels are safe for food applications (and meet your local/federal legislations).

 

If there are no known safety/quality issues with your labels, then you would assess as such.

They ask you to recall the experiences of the hazards:

1- Foreseen items which are obvious or common senses/knowledge in the field. 

2- Failure items, apart from above, which you or sister/parent companies or competitors encountered from the past. You can indicate this by a simple statistic analysis of the occurrences.

3- Systemised experiences by technical experts which are written into applicable standards/instructions. You only need to cite the document names or codes.

4- Same as above but by governments. 

A purpose is to help you to minimise any missing hazards. A paragraph mentioning these might well show your awareness.

Thank you... would you happen to have a template for the procedure of hazard analysis preparation and identification of risks with regards to self adhesive labels? My procedure is covering the product characteristics, intended use, flow diagrams verification.  Any help will be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you again

Hi Beautiophile

 

You have totally lost me now, are still talking about labels?

I don't have one, unfortunately. In this case, you can make it your own by using the format best suited for you. If you have done a general risk assessment where you identify hazards and quantify based on frequency and severity, I would surmise that would be acceptable. You could also expand on that risk assessment by presenting any justifications you have for any risks you've identified. If you haven't identified any, you can still justify that claim as well in a summary.

Hi Beautiophile

I believe Beautiophile is still referencing your labels, they are just trying to further clarify what is being asked of you.

 

1. Foreseen items -  as examples: risk in the adhesive glue or risk with the inks used on the labels.

2. Have there been any known failures that other label makers have encountered in the past with labels or the materials in the labels?

3 & 4. Are there any specific standards/regulations/guidelines that you must follow in your label making? Are you following them?

It makes sense now. Thanks again

Broken down well, this I totally understand.

I only have a copy of  brc packaging standard ver5 but, assuming a similar layout, 2.2.2 appears to be  merely an intro to 2.2.5 et al which has the detailed requirements.


Kind Regards,
