7.10.2 Corrective actions

Data dervied from the monitoring of operational Prerequisite Programmes and critical control points must evaluated by designated persons with sufficient knowledge and authority to initiate corrective actions.

Corrective actions must be initiated when critical limits are exceeded or when there is a lack of conformity with operational prerequisite programmes.

The food organization must establish and maintain PROCEDURES that specify appropriate actions to identify and eliminate the cause of nonconformities, to prevent recurrence and to bring the process/system back into control after nonconformity is found. The actions include:
- nonconformity review (includes customer complaints)
- review of trends in monitoring results to detect the development of out of control situations
- determining the cause of nonconformities
- evaluation of the need for action to ensure nonconformities don't recur
- determining and implementing needed actions
- recording results of corrective actions
- reviewing corrective actions taken to ensure effectiveness

Records of corrective action are made.
