Hi, is the ceiling in the instant noodle frying area mandatory according to BRC standards? Currently there is only a top cover along the frying line.

Hi purnana,

 

You're joking, right ?


Kind Regards,

Solid structures are standard across the board. What do you have right now?

Hi purnama,

 

Some more detail would be good - I think the rest of us are probably picturing your facility with open access to the sky :huh: But perhaps something is lost in translation. What is it exactly you mean by 'top cover'?

 

Have a read through clauses 4.4.4 and 4.4.5 as a starter and let us know if that doesn't answer your question.

I assume OP's factory is roofed by a single layer of tiles or metal plates. Such simply built structures are easily found in SEA.

Then OP might question if he needs an additional ceiling/plafond underneath the roof.

But note the word "only" ?

 

Perhaps the word "ceiling" actually meant "false ceiling" but Nostradamus is unfortunately not a member here. :smile:

My guess is "suspended ceiling". Not sure about OP's mother tongue, mine doesn't have a literal equivalent of "ceilings". The most common translation always implies it can be a intermediate board between the floor and the roof and above people's head. In the other words, I stay in a room, look up and see only one single separation to the sky, I still call what I see roof (top cover like OP), hardly ceiling.
