I am trying to improve my internal inspection program and also meet SQF Edition 8 requirements. There seems to be a distinction between an internal audit and an internal inspection.
An audit would cover the entire SQF Food Safety System (documentation included). It would basically be an audit similar to what the certification body would conduct.
An inspection is a routine (for us, monthly) inspection covering things like GMPs, building maintenance, equipment, etc. For us, I've been using a checklist format which I've attached. I would like to improve it by having a better way of recording personnel GMPs. I also think a monthly report would also be good so that it's easier to track recurring problems.
Am I heading in the right direction? Does anybody have advice for improvement?
