I would like some feedback regarding section 2.5.5. and 2.5.7. After a practice audit, auditor made observations of programs that were poorly developed, one of them being Internal Audit. We are seeking to be certified under SQF 2000 Module 2/ Level 2 and Module 11. I have created some documents to be in compliance with code, and I just want some feedback and make sure I am in a good path.
After not having having success on last practice audit my focus now is to clear understand the process sequence to ensure programs align with the SQF Code. To start with, I have created the following:
1. SQF Internal Audit Format to verify the effectiveness of the SQF System (each of the sections of the Module)
2. If deficiencies were identified during the Internal Audit, the Non-Conformance Log will be the document that will support the Internal Audit Format.
3. Corrective and Preventive Action Request will help to outline any deficiency identified on the Food Safety Manual.
4. Corrective and Preventive Action Summary Log will help just to have a register for tracking all CAPAs created.
What I understand between 2.5.5 Corrective Action and 2.5.7 Internal Audits is that Corrective Actions will be issued if any non-compliance regarding to HACCP or Food Safety related, and Internal Audits is more about ensuring each section of the modules are in compliance with the code. Feel free to give examples.
I know it can be a lot of information. At this point I will rely on the SQF Code and your great guidance. We have had 2 consultants already and we thought we were on the right path.
I truly appreciate your help.
