Hello, 

 

I am currently working in the Hemp industry at a new company and their approach to Standard Operating Procedures is to only have them for their processes that contain a CCP. They have stretched the definition for CCP to include something they call a Quality CCP as well. They want to have standalone work instructions for everything else.  Additionally they want forms to be associated with SOPs or stand alone, however, not to be associated with work instructions.  I feel that this is very confusing as it is hard to follow the process in the documentation and there are gaps for important processes because they don't contain a CCP and it is difficult to include process in a work instruction.  Any thoughts? ideas? help?

 

Thanks

Looks like a full revamp is needed.

What regulatory framework and/or certifications does the facility have or is seeking?

One wonders what the original justification for these curious manouevres was ? Minimise paperwork ?

 

As per Post 3, is the facility CFIA-approved ??


Kind Regards,

The facility is Health Canada approved and is moving towards being GACP certified by the end of the year and then looking towards having some sort of GFSI certification within the next year.  

 

I'm not sure why they chose this approach, I think they feel that is how it is addressed in the GACP guidelines, however I can't seem to see that anywhere  I would like to do a full revamp.
