SQFI Releases Guidance Documents for Modules 2 & 11 of SQF Code

The SQF Institute released today, May 9th, 2013, two key documents for those suppliers seeking to implement and maintain an SQF System and for auditors assessing those systems. The documents, titled General Guidance for Developing, Documenting, Implementing, Maintaining, and Auditing an SQF System, are available for modules 2 and 11 of the SQF Code, edition 7.1.

These guidance documents have been designed to provide suppliers interpretations on how to design, develop, document, implement, and maintain an SQF System for a general food processing operation (modules 2 and 11) and to assist SQF registered auditors in auditing the SQF Code, edition 7.

The guides are intended to support the SQF Code, but do not replace it. They are not auditable documents, nor are they definitive and applicable in every situation. Suppliers, consultants, and auditors are required to understand the food safety (and quality, where applicable) risks in a given industry sector and are able to apply the SQF Code to effectively control those risks.

The SQF Institute is grateful for the assistance provided by the SQFI Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) and other SQF stakeholders for their assistance in finalizing both documents.
