Complete the FSMS Request For Document Change Template after reviewing the requested change(s), indicating the nature and reason for the change. The Department Manager should submit the FS1000-1 REQUEST FOR DOCUMENT CHANGE (RDC) with the changed document to the Food Safety Team Leader for review. If the request is ISO 22000 compliant, the Food Safety Team Leader should determine who else needs to review the change and submit the change and the request to those individuals (the document review team) for their review.
The document reviewers should consider the change and the reason for it and determine if the change is warranted. If the document review team approves the requested changes, the Food Safety Team Leader should assign a Document Change Number (DCN) and submit the new or changed documents, with the appropriate approvals and the Food Safety Request For Document Change Template, to Document Control for typing and formatting.
