Hi,

I am tasked to improve the Incoming Quality Control for a company manufacturing processed food. Can anyone tell me what are the commonly used AQL in the food industry sampling plan? I guess there are also different AQLs used for different categories of rejects e.g. health hazards like E. coli are judged differently compared to just blemished incoming products. Thanks in advance!:)

1. Instead of AQL you may want to consider using RQL plan. We have a spreadsheet here (courtesy of Bev).

2. For reference, you may want to refer to EC178 2010.

3. For food, you can't really have a fixed rule or figure like manufacturing - everything goes back to risk assessment and past experiences.
