hi everyone! :biggrin: i am currently drafting our Cleaning and Sanitation plan as part of our PRPs for ISO22000 certification. SSOPs are already in place. I would like to ask though, as when I searched the net the contents of Cleaning and Sanitation plans posted only yielded those for food service and not food manufacturing set-ups, for everyone's suggestions on what specifically to include in a Cleaning and Sanitation Plan. :helpplease:

My draft includes the following:
a. Introduction
b. Company Quality Policy
c. Summary of Cleaning Chemicals and Action
d. Cleaning Materials and Implements (Summary)
e. SSOPs
f. Pest Control Management
g. Water Quality Policy
h. Personnel Hygiene
i. Infrastructure and Equipment Maintenance Policy


Would this be enough? Or do I need add or eliminate some? Your suggestions and input would be greatly appreciated.... :biggrin:

Every plan has to include methods, frequencies, and responsabilities for verification - see 7.8

Dear Althene,

Every plan has to include methods, frequencies, and responsabilities for verification - see 7.8


slightly :off_topic:

If it's of any interest, a quite neat table layout example of methods / frequencies for cleaning (see VII-7) + considerable text detail on this and other related issues is at -

http://www.cfsan.fda...s/prodgui4.html

(additionally to the above, auditors hv always requested validation documents of the suitability of specific cleaning chemicals IMEX [ non - i22k visits])(and quite rightly so IMO!)

Rgds / Charles.C

added - with respect to yr original question, a quick look at i22k sec 7.2.3 suggests that within "sanitation" you should include (d) = waste disposal somewhere, perhaps © also depending on situation unless this is covered in yr "Water Quality Policy", and (f) management purchased chemicals ?, and (g) ??
(not to forget [k] of course :biggrin: )

Kind Regards,

 

Charles.C

Thanks Charles and Erasmo...t

the feedback was of great help... :thumbup: i admit i really am having some trouble making the plan due to the variety of the products we produce (biscuits, noodles, flour, and seasoning including yoghurt drinks), and considering the manufacturing set-up, it quite adds to the pressure as well. :unsure:

For waste disposal, we have a contractor for such, also for janitorial services and wastewater management. Do i need to also validate their procedures and the services that they offer as well?

Last question, the management wants me to do one general sanitation plan based on the current Sanitation Standard Operating Procedures. I am thinking I'd group all the similar non-food contact surfaces common to all the plants which have the same methods, have a table for those which have the same cleaning frequency, and just segregate those that are specialized for each plant.

What do you guys think? :unsure:

Again, my thanks for all the help...hopefully when i go visit abroad i'd get to chat up with both of you.

cheers! :biggrin:

I would say yes.

That sounds logical Althene.
