Each time the BRC standard changes, we all have to improve our systems to meet the new requirements. At Techni-K our aim is make this as painless as possible for you, by providing you with articles, documentation packs and courses to help you. Now, we’re going to help you with non-conformance trending.
The only thing we’ve not had until now, is the ability to be able to tell you which clauses are causing the most non-conformances.
But not anymore…
We now have a simple form that you can fill in, to tell us which clauses you got non-conformances for in your audit. The information provided is strictly confidential and we will not share any information about you personally, or your site. The aim of collecting this data, is so that we can use it, to help you by providing you with non-conformance trending.
The non-conformance trending form
In the form we ask you to tell us:
- Your name and email (which will not be shared)
- Your site name (which is optional, but again will not be shared)
- Your location
- Your certification body
- The date of your audit
- Which clauses you got non-conformances for and if they were minor, major or critical
We only ask for your name, email and site details, just in case we need to get in touch with you for further information. Typically, this won’t be needed, but if a trend appears where we think you may have information that will help other sites, we may need to get in touch.
What we’ll do with the data
Once we have the information, we’re going to use it to let you know what the most common non-conformances are. We can then write articles on these specific topics to help you, so that you don’t get the same non-conformance.
Because we’re asking about your location, we will be able to provide this non-conformance trending detail for your country as well, in case there are differences from location to location.
Plus, we can look at the data by certification body as well. Which means, we’ll be able to let you know if there are any certification bodies that are more likely to give you certain non-conformances. So, if you have the same certification body, you can be ready!
How up to date will the information be?
At first, we’re going to have to manipulate this data manually for you. But our intention is to automate it. That way you’ll be able to go onto our website and see the results live, in real time.
The sky’s the limit!
We think this non-conformance trending is going to be pretty neat! We’re very excited about it – we hope you are too. It really shows, that we’re building an amazing community that are willing to help each other to succeed. We are really becoming a force to be reckoned with!
This is just the start though and we think we can build on this. We really need to think big. Imagine if we could share more – to help each other. We could share information on how to close out non-conformances, best practice solutions to non-conformances and much, much more.
What do you want?
So please, get involved and fill in the form for your site and share your non-conformance results. If you can think of any ways of us building on this to improve it, please add your suggestions to the reply box below.
Plus, if you can think of any other ways of us providing this type of service for you, that would help you, please let us know about that too! We truly want our website to be as useful to you as it can be, so tell us what you want and we’ll try our very best.
