- BRC, SQF and FSSC 22000 require that laundry facilities be inspected and meet food safety standards, procedures, and programs.
The general clean clothing policies become more specific and stringent when a facility strives to fulfill the requirements of a Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) audit. BRC (7.4.3 and 7.4.4), SQF (184.108.40.206), and FSSC 22000 (13.4) all specify that workwear and protective clothing must be cleaned, stored, and transported to meet the food safety standards.
AIB GMP Inspection requires that “suitable outer garments” be worn. The GFSI audit further requires that protective clothing that is worn in high risk areas must be cleaned in laundries that are audited and certified. Proper certification indicates that the clothing is cleaned effectively, commercially sterile after washing and drying, segregated from dirty clothing, and protected from contamination.
The AIB Laundry Inspection assures that a laundry and its storage areas meet the expectations of the food industry, including policies and procedures, personnel training programs, and relations with food industry customers.
This inspection includes additional requirements for washing, wash temperature, garment handling, and storage.
