Good day members,

 

I am busy implementing the environmental monitoring from the V6 additional requirements. I need to do a risk assessment but I need to know which decision tree I can use? I have a decision tree which determines PRP, OPRP or CCP, which is used with our Hazzard Analysis. Can I use this?

 

I would like to make the environmental monitoring risk assessment a separate document from the hazard analysis, would it be the correct thing to do? 

 

If anyone could assist me, I would really appreciate it.

Greetings Jeandrelee,

 

Environmental monitoring risk assessment is separate from Hazard Analysis. It doesn't identify possible dangers (biological, chemical, physical, allergens) but rather it already takes into account that there are biological risks and it "asks" you to determine through a risk assessment the critical areas of possible contamination and frequency of checks for said parameters (mainly TVC and Molds).

 

Regards!

Hi

you can use below guide to implement EMP (risk based approach)

Thank you Farshad, that is useful.

 

I did notice that cleaning equipment was not included in the items to monitor  :uhm:  A major omission IMO.

 

Kind regards,

 

Tony

Yes you are right . As it is a guide the user should include it.

Hi farshad,

 

Thks for the link. It's a useful overview but, typically for generic oriented systems, it contains limited quantitative data and no detailed case examples of actual situations. Also seems unaware that some species of E.coli are (famously) pathogenic. Various practical EMPG programs are compiled elsewhere on this Forum,

 

PS - The link's Ref. contains a quite interesting compilation of micro.Guidelines for surfaces which I have extracted below. Includes a rare suggestion for Y&M count limit. Some of the APC values are IMEX extremely optimistic.

 

Attached File  Some Micro. Guidelines for Cleaned and Disinfected Surfaces,2021.pdf   244.88KB   148 downloads

 


Kind Regards,

 

Charles.C
