Hi,

Can any one share a procedure or an example or a format of a Line Clearance Procedure for a flexible plastic packaging industry - extrusion, printing, laminating, pouch/ bag making, slitting?

Thanks

 Hi Lakmal,

 

I daresay the Interp.Guidelines may answer yr query.

 

Can try the posts below. Some are not specific to BRC Packaging or BRC Packaging ver 6 but I included for general interest/format ideas. Should also look at posts around my link. -

(BRC Pck. 2012)

https://www.ifsqn.co...ccp/#entry59049

(FSAP, see file cc4 >> “line clearance”)

https://www.ifsqn.co...ks/#entry107435

(brc pck. 2016, “maintenance” oriented)(also see post 2)

https://www.ifsqn.co...ing/#entry39859

(KRAFT, see haccp plan /  line clearance procedure)(various occurrences)

https://www.ifsqn.co...le/#entry133847

(brc pck 6 oriented but primarily prob. restates the Code)

Dear Charles,

 

Thank you very much information provided. I am confident that by navigating through all the links that you have provided, I will be able to formulate a Line Clearance Procedure and a Line Clearance Checklist suitable to our Company. 

 

Once again thank you for your tireless efforts in serving the IFSQN community.

 

Best regards

Hi Charles,

 

Thank you. I have already prepared a Line Clearance Procedure & a Line Clearance Checklist. I will see how it goes with the auditor when we have the audit in 2 weeks time.

 

Best regards

The PDF is Charles C. reply is a Kraft document that is more definitions and an a broad outline of line clearance requirements.

 

I work for a company that prints web rollstock.  In a sense, we are a continuing operation:  some part of the web from the previous job must be left in the machine to pull the materials from the next job into the machine.

 

So, two suggestions:

  • Pull a plain web through the machine between jobs.  This is the least practical,
  • Or ensure that you change cores (flyover) before you starting producing good material for the next job.  Usually you are accumulating startup material.  This and the web from the previous job should be on a separate core where this material can be scrapped.
  • Suggest that you have stickers that say "SCRAP" which you put on the roll to be scrapped.  Preferably have someone initial it.
