12.1 - TRACEABILITY SYSTEM (BASE)

  • Procedures must be in place to enable traceability of product from a finished pack back to all processes involved in the manufacture including the raw materials, work in progress and packaging used.

  • Full quantity checks must be included to demonstrate full reconciliation

  • Where finished product is purchased through an agent, then the agent must be able to provide information relating to receipt of delivery, volume on stock, volume dispatched and depots.

  • WGLL - where sites have bulk storage on site and they operate a system of topping up with each delivery, they must be able to demonstrate this in their traceability challenge

  • WGLL - Site has a defined frequency of emptying and cleaning

12.2 - TRACEABILITY SYSTEM (BASE)

  • Procedures must be in place to trace a batch of raw materials or packaging delivered, to all products it has been used in

12.3 - TRACEABILITY SYSTEM (BASE)

  • The factory must be able to demonstrate that traceability and mass balance procedures work effectively by completing traceability / mass balance challenges on raw materials and finished products (minimum twice per year)

  • Where membership of a specific scheme requires additional traceability exercises, (eg. Some agricultural schemes) the minimum requirement would be based on the specific scheme.

  • WGLL - the factory retains all records as evidence of completing traceability tests and not just summarised outcomes.

12.3.1 - TRACEABILITY SYSTEM (BASE)

  • Traceability exercises must be completed within 4 hours

  • Original documents are submitted where possible

  • WGLL - the trace from origin of raw materials to finished products, including records of all critical processes, takes less than 4 hours to gather relevant evidence for presentation.

12.4 - TRACEABILITY SYSTEM (BASE)

  • The factory must be able to demonstrate that traceability and mass balance procedures work effectively for food contact packaging (minimum twice per year).
