Stay on top of the requirement by taking the examination prior to the SQF Conference.
The GFSI Auditor Competency Exam is based on the content of the GFSI Benchmarking Requirements and is designed to assess competency across a range of skills. The exam questions cover both sector-specific technical skills, such as Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP), Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) or Good Agricultural Practice (GAP) requirements and standard auditing skills such as sampling and evidence gathering.

A time limit of one hundred eighty (180) minutes is given to complete each examination.
Examinees are not allowed to consult any materials during the examination.
There is mutual recognition of exam results among GFSI-benchmarked Certification Program Owners (CPOs). There is only need to complete the exam (s) once regardless of the CPO you may work with.
