Re: Tell me How to Write a Quality Manual

My practice is to not complicate the process when integrating a system. Take your current Policy, ensure it is still relevant and add to the statement.

Remember that you are audited to the policy. So whatever your policy says your system must support. Hope this helps.

Are you referring to the British Retail Consortium Food Safety Management System? If so, they do not have ISO 9001 roots although there are some common areas. I would not mix them up as to me, one is an apple and the other an orange - a new policy is in order.

Could you be clearer with your request?

Do you mean ISO 9001:2008? If so, there are lots of discussions here in other threads - try a search. Basically, nothing changed from 2000......but the discussion make interesting reading!

If you are looking to upgrade your system to ISO 22000 from ISO 9001, then, once again, there are a number of dicussions here. Please look at the bottom of this page for similar threads. I'm sure others here will also add their comments.

Re: Should I have a new policy for implementing BRC Food Safety Management System?

I have a single policy statement that has worked for both ISO 22000 and BRC and I am working towards registration on ISO 9000 and intend to use the same statement.

It is your system so you should be able to write a policy that suits your needs based on the standards.

I really appreciate your reply, my concern was not to make the policy complicated to ensure that all employees at all levels are able to understand the policy as it's an every day simple and clear " prayer".... thank you again
