Based on the Supplier Assurance manual for food manufacturing sites, the trace must be finished within 4 hours and recover 99.5% - 105%.

Hi all,

 

Our organization is trying to get certified for NSF. I would just like to know if there is a maximum target time to trace for NSF? And if it has a mandated computation for mass and balance. Thanks in advance!

What standard are you looking to certify against? SQF, BRC? Do you produce products for Costco?

Hi semolinaflour,

 

Traceability standards vary, best practice would be 4 hours, but you need to consider the relevant standard. 

 

Are you looking for a specific NSF product or type of certification?

 

The range offered by NSF is on these webpages:

https://www.nsf.org/...e=certification

https://www.nsf.org/...e=certification

 

Other than that they offer certification to your preferred Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) benchmarked scheme.

 

Kind regards,

 

Tony
