SQF 2020 and Beyond

Speak Up! Help Shape Edition 9 of The SQF Code

The release of version 8 of GFSI’s Benchmarking Requirements in March 2020 gives SQFI the opportunity to assess and update the current SQF Code and address emerging issues and stakeholder concerns prior to releasing Edition 9 in late 2020. In this 2-part interactive session, led by SQFI’s Vice President of Technical Affairs, SQF Stakeholders will get the unique opportunity to help shape the new edition of the Code and the future of food safety.

In Part I we’ll reveal the results of the 2019 SQF Stakeholder Survey. You’ll hear feedback from your peers on topics such as the audit scoring system, audit duration, SQF Code requirements and surveillance audits and learn how this will help build Edition 9. You can also take this opportunity to ask the SQF experts in a town hall-style Q&A.

In Part II we’ll host an interactive stakeholder feedback forum, where you’ll engage in constructive dialogue with your peers on elements of the current SQF Code and discuss what changes are needed in Edition 9. By sharing your input with your peers and SQFI you’ll play a significant role in helping shape the future of food safety and the SQF Program.
