Is there any requirement that says ownership/or quality be notified in any way if the freezer or cooler goes out or temperature drops below set limit during the period  when the facility is closed?

Storage & Transport:

"Cold and chilled storage rooms shall be fitted with temperature monitoring equipment and located so as

to monitor the warmest part of the room and be fitted with a temperature measurement device that is easily

readable and accessible."

 

Industry best practice would be to have these monitored continually and alert someone if they go outside the set parameters.

I believe you'd mentioned that you were SQF Level II.  Here is the section that relates to: (It is the same language that Pizza&Sandwich provided...)

 

 

11.6.1.4 Cold Storage, Freezing and Chilling of Foods Freezing, chilling and cold storage rooms shall be fitted with temperature monitoring equipment and located so as to monitor the warmest part of the room and be fitted with a temperature measurement device that is easily readable and accessible.
