Just recently had my first ever SQF audit and received a minor on 188.8.131.52 Management Review for validation " Food safety fundamentals and food safety plans shall be reviewed when any changes implemented have an impact on the supplier's ability to deliver safe food." The auditor's reasoning was as follows:
"All changes over the last year that involved the food safety program were reviewed but there is no records of a validation taking place. No special management review meeting was called and held to determine if the changes in the food safety system Management review meeting notes were pulled and audited to verify that changes were noted in the meeting notes".
He mentioned not having records in my management review meetings of validation of changes, such as adding equipment. I am in the process of making my corrective action but I am confused in terms of how I would present my validation of any changes made.
