We are preparing for SQF level 2 certification. one of the requirement for that is to conduct internal audit. We pack fresh fruits and vegetables. Can anyone provide me with the checklist for the internal auditing for the fulfilment of the requirement.
I have been an internal auditor for other, non-food quality systems such as API (American Petroleum Institute), ISO 17025, and others and I made it a habit to turn the standard into my internal audit. What better way to ensure you're auditing all of the sections of the standard which are appropriate to you? Of course, if you have items which should be audited outside of the scope of the standard, be sure to include them as well.
I took the standard and turned it into an Excel form. In those days I had to hand type it all out but SQF is nice enough to provide you with a free downloadable version of the standard in Excel format.
You can also make a copy to use to prepare for audits, especially if you're paperless in any way. To the right of each requirement, simply type in the documents that fulfill that requirement. And if you're paperless, you can make that into a link so you can link to the docs straight from your copy of the standard without having to open another window and click through layers of folders and docs.
