Hello, I am reviewing edition 9 for manufacture of food packaging and I see that the below is mentioned in the new edition. I am wondering if due to the fact that our haccp plan has revealed we are low risk for bacterial outbreaks, do we have to change our methods for testing from once a year to an outside micro lab to instead internal environmental testing on all finished good products prior to releasing to the client?

  1.  In the event that the site uses positive release based on product pathogen or chemical testing, a procedure shall be in place to ensure that product is not released until acceptable results have been received.
