Hi Arnie,

 

the BRC clause says it all -

 

The BRC I.Guidelines somewhat amplify/interpret the above.

 

"Industry best practice" is IMEX flexible but often vaguely correlated to typical customer expectations although the latter often tend to be somewhat "ambitious".  Are you aware that Loma et al publish typical MD sensitivities for (afaik) non-metallized packaging / typical, practical, apertures and product types (eg wet/dry) ? The Tables are available in various threads on this Forum.

 

Actually I'm a little surprised that for yr specific case Loma didn't mention  X-Ray (eg Post 18). Probably more expensive though.

Yes I am familiar now as they sent this chart for non met product specs

 

Take a look at their dry product specification chart for sensi. 

 

They probably didn't mention Xray as we are a small start up in a small facility, and X-ray would be overkill for us as we don't retail anything just yet. 

Also, the food authorities in the UK are very well... missing. Some new food businesses have not been audited or visited since 2019.

There you are then. Good to Go.

 

Now all you have to do is validate the numbers (eg Post 17). ;)

 

PS - a useful example of a MD, sensitivity validation scheme is attached here -
