Companies in the Food & Beverage industry are dedicated to quality control and business document management with customer satisfaction and regulated by the FDA and SQF audit guidelines. Maintaining document control or business document management is paramount to establishing a reputation for high standards and compliance.
ENSUR is a quality management software that helps Food & Beverage companies manage their policies and procedures related to HACCP Controls, Continuous Product Quality Monitoring and their Food Safety programs. The FDA and SQF audit guidelines stipulate that Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and ENSUR helps companies comply with those recommendations. While a quality management and document control application is not necessarily required, companies on the leading edge of regulatory compliance implement these document management applications to assist in their quality programs.
Some of the requirements of these guidelines that ENSUR has helped Food & Beverage companies with include:
- Corrective Actions: Both the SQF audit and FDA require a documented process to take corrective action
- Trained Staff: Both the SQF and FDA require staff to be trained and maintain employee training records.
- Record Retention: SQF requires record retention and the FDA audit process requires that documents and records are retained for 2 years.
- Document Control: The methods and procedures responsible for maintaining document control and ensuring staff have access to current documents shall be documented and implemented.
