Hi all, not sure if this is the correct sub to ask this in...
I am the Quality Manager for a cannabis manufacturing operation and I am looking to hire an entry level QC tech to assist me with some tasks. I only need a few hours of help each day, so I planned to have this tech work on the manufacturing team for the rest of their day.
Although our BSI Standards do not directly state the QC tech must be independent from the processes they're reviewing, I believe this is the general consensus; however I am remaining the Quality Manager and I am independent from the Manufacturing Department. I would still be the one conducting internal audits and countersigning all records etc.
Is there a conflict of interest here? It it appropriate (or can it be appropriate) to have a combo QC/Manufacturing tech or would each position need to be a separate person?
Your insight is greatly appreciated!
