I have recently started with a new company and am reviewing all the forms and procedures. We have checklist's and work forms but everyone of these forms not only has to be completed as used (like you would expect) but then needs a third party to come and fill out a verification column or section verifying that the document has been filled out and filled out correctly.
This last step seems like an unnecessary step and waste of time and resources. Is this required by SQF? I haven't found anything in the guide requiring it. Isnt filling out the form verifying we are working in accordance with the SOP all thats required?
