We just had our audit for the year (96% ) and the auditor gave us an OFP for verification, valiation, and internal auditing. In Section 2.5 SQF System Verification of Module 2, it states that ALL systems must be verified, and validated. In various sections of Module 2 and 11, some say verified, some say verified and validated, some dont mention verifying and validating at all. Which is it? Do you verify and validate all sections per 2.5 or do you go with what is listed in each of the other sections?
Also, I have it that we verify and validate one section during the first two weeks of the month and internal audit the same the last two weeks of the month for each section. I was told it would be better if the whole process took 3 months and that I should be verifying one section, validating a second section, and internal auditing a third. For example, we currently review Module 11.3 in March. We would verify and validate from March 1-15 and internal audit March 16-30. I was told to switch it to verify in March, validate in April, and internal audit in May. Thoughts?
I know that we didn't lose marks but I found it EXTREMELY fustrating because I had spent months going over the rules and coming up with a system and was proud of what we had.
