Hi. In my experience (GMP, HACCP certified shrimp production line) you won't include mentioned by you in your hazards analisis as long as this same cabinet is not a part of you production/logistics process... Just keep it away from production and other unappropriate zones, label it, keep it in order and use your chemicals for intended purpose.

Hello all, an understanding of the broad concept of chemical acceptability seems to elude me. I have bleach that the janitor uses to clean the bathrooms. It is stored in the janitorial cabinet as opposed to the chemical cabinet. Chemical cabinet being where I keep all of my chemicals that I use for production (FDA approved, etc.). Do I have to have to do a Hazard Analysis for the likelihood that the chemicals in the janitorial cabinet will get into Production? Can I not use the bleach at all? What about the glass cleaner that is used for the bathroom mirrors? That is also in the janitorial cabinet. I feel I be missing a key concept in the procedure. Thank you, Graham

Is this an FSMA-related query or ?

 

Traditionally in HACCP,  Hazard analysis relates to the Process Steps.

 

PRPs control the Sanitation aspects etc.via SSOPs

Hello:

 

I used to work for a North American corporation with food manufacturing facilities in both Canada and the USA.

Due to food defense considerations, we were required to replace all our janitorial type cleaners purchased from retail stores with products "approved" for incidental contact with food. 

 

However, depending upon the size of your facility and number of people with access to these cleaners, you may be able to document an acceptable hazard analysis and continue using your current cleaners.

But simple answer - I suspect may be the food defense considerations which you eluding you.

 

Hope this helps,
