Hello everyone,
 
we had an audit of a client (in which I did not participate because it was supposed to be carried out in another unit that is not even BRC certified) but I was given the following non-compliance:
 
"There is no clear allergen policy to ensure that maintenance lubricants and cleaning chemicals are not used / purchased if they have allergens. Also include good team hygiene practices to avoid allergen cross contamination"
 
 
I was thinking of putting the information in our work instructions on good production practices and good hygiene practices...
 
Any idea how I can answer this question?
 
Please share any documents you think are relevant!
 
PS: we produce BOPP film
 
Thank you :)

Add to your supplier verification - all items including chemicals are checked for allergens before purchasing/using.

If following BRC, i would just add it to the required chemical approval procedure. then obtain the documentation form the
chemical suppliers. I don't think you need to make it much more difficult then that.
