The SQF CIP, helps to ensure the consistent execution of the SQF program to meet stakeholder expectations. the CIP is used to identify areas for improvement to strengthen the SQF Program. There are two areas of focus for the CIP: Monitoring Activities and Stakeholder feedback.
SQF has a series of normative documents that include: The SQF Fundamental Codes, The SQF Food Safety Codes, The SQF Quality Code, SQF Criteria, SQF Policies and Procedures, and Code Amendments.
