Yes, with safeguards. and I am assuming your mean in a non-gmp area. We have clients with offices off of production and packaging - sides of the building, door open inward to the office.


Kind regards,

Hi Qcman,

 

It might relate to any specific local regulatory Standard  but, offhand, a typical safety requirement would be that the insertion not create any significant contamination risk with respect to the food product. The latter will likely depend on the product/personnel flowchart patterns.


Kind Regards,

Hi QC man.

 

Our office door opens into the production areas, so it is right next to it. Separate room - completely fine, ensure there are things like hand-washing, hair net dispenser etc. nearby. 

 

If you mean can you situate an office 'area' within the packaging area - as in not a separate room - just ensure there is nothing that could cause contamination / goes against already implemented policies and procedures.
