Batch Traceability: Three Things You Need To Know


Batch traceability is an important part of any BRC (Business Registration Certificate) compliance. It provides the ability to indicate the state, location, and time of production for a batch. It also allows you to assign your batches with production codes that allow them to be traced through all life-cycle stages.

What are three things you need to know about it?

1) Batch Numbers can be assigned at any point in time during the manufacturing process; they do not need to be assigned sequentially
2) All batches must have an expiration date that is after when it was created
3) A unique serial number needs to be assigned for each batch

Batch traceability is a new regulation in the food industry that requires companies to maintain records of every batch of products they produce. It was implemented in response to concerns about intentional or unintentional contamination of food products.
