In reference to SQF Code 188.8.131.52, The senior management shall be responsible for reviewing the SQF System and documenting the review procedure. Reviews shall include the policy manual, internal and external audit findings, corrective actions and their investigations and resolution, customer complaints and their resolution and investigation.
Who does SQF define as Senior Management? I am the one right now who does all the legwork of the system review. I then in turn relate all to the president of the company and let him know what I going to improve, adjust, etc.
My title is Quality Coordinator and I currently have the responsibility of SQF practitioner under my role as well as other duties. I also oversee the logistics, inventory, scheduling, warehouse, purchasing, and of course all SQF duties. It may seem like much but with the structure we have in place it is a fairly smooth process. I have one person under me who takes care of the daily paperwork reviews, audits, etc for Quality and I also have one person under me who takes care of the day to day of the warehouse. We are a small company of 17 people to include the accounting and president.
Would I qualify or be defined as "Senior Management"?
