FSEP Manual 2010
Prerequisite Program Requirements
Reference to Chapter 10 DEIM – Prerequisite Programs
A.2.1.1
The building is designed and constructed:
  • To meet regulatory and CFIA program requirements
  • So its access is secure
  • So the roof, air intakes, foundation, walls, doors and windows prevent leakage and entry of contaminants and pests
  • To effectively separate incompatible operationsTable Note 1
  • To provide hygienic operations by means of a regulated flow from point of entry to the premises to the final productTable Note 1
  • To effectively prevent cross-contamination due to employee traffic pattern, food product flow and equipmentTable Note 1
  • So living quarters and areas where animals are kept are separated from and do not open directly into food processing or packaging areas
  • So incoming materials (food, non-food, packaging) are received in an area separate from food processing areas
  • So washrooms, lunchrooms and change rooms are separated from and do not open directly into food processing areas
  • So separate and adequate facilities are provided for:
  • To prevent cross-connection between:
    • the effluent of human wastes and production drainage wastes in the establishments
    • potable water lines and non-potable water supply systems
      • Non-potable re-circulated/reused/recycled water has a separate distribution system which is readily identifiable in the facility
  • So the sewage and the waste effluent system do not pass directly over or through production unless they are controlled to prevent contamination
  • So drainage and sewage systems are equipped with functional traps and vents
  • So floors permit liquids to drain to trapped outlets
  • So floors, walls, doors, windows, ceilings, overheads and other structures in rooms or areas where food is manufactured, stored, packaged, received or shipped are cleanable, prevent contamination, prohibit deterioration, are suitable for the activities in each area and are free of any noxious constituentsTable Note 2
