I know as part of HACCP through for high risk processes, direct observation is required to verify CCPs and PRPs. In a low risk facility that is not governed by these rules (USDA/FSIS/FDA) are direct observations as part of your verification required for SQF? The phrase "direct observation" isn't even used in the entire SQF Code 7.2. I want to make sure I'm reading on this correctly. Anyone else have any experience with auditors for SQF on this?
