Glossary

  • Critical Non conformance - Issued if there is an immediate food safety risk. This is usually a risk of foreign material, cross contamination/allergen or a risk due to process or procedure failure. A critical non conformance should result in cessation of production and immediate remedial action. A critical may also be issued if a Major non conformance from the previous audit has not been rectified or is continuing repeat issue.

  • Major non conformance - Issued for a failure in GMP that, although not posing an immediate food safety risk, if left unattended may result in a risk or ongoing GMP failure. A Major may also be issued for repeat or unresolved Minor non conformances from previous audits.

  • Minor non conformance - Issued for what is considered a short term failure of GMP procedure which may not be corrected if left unresolved. A Minor May also be issued as a result of repeated Observation failures.

  • Observation - An Observation is a recorded comment relating to a one off or WIP incident. It may also be a recommendation for review of an existing procedure or work practice which may not fully comply with GMP or HACCP guidelines.
