Do we know if there is one for V8 yet? I was looking earlier today but could only find one for 7.2

“Will this be on the test?" "Yeah, about the test. The test will measure whether you are an informed, engaged, and productive citizen of the world, and it will take place in schools and bars and hospitals and dorm rooms and in places of worship. You will be tested on first dates, in job interviews, while watching football, and while scrolling through your Twitter feed. The test will judge your ability to think about things other than celebrity marriages, whether you’ll be easily persuaded by empty political rhetoric, and whether you’ll be able to place your life and your community in a broader context. The test will last your entire life, and it will be comprised of the millions of decisions, that when taken together, make your life yours. And everything — EVERYTHING — will be on it.”

None listed on the site yet. Maybe one of us here at IFSQN will be kind enough to make one for our own facility and host it here.

Guidance documents should be ready in July of 2017. Haven't heard about the audit checklists yet.

A SQF Auditor once randomly mentioned out loud (as they do not consult) that it is helpful with the Internal Audits if a company uses the SQF Checklist that SQF provides.



After that, we created internal audits using the checklist questions and have not had any questions or issues with them since. Just make sure you cover both the desk and facility sections for the modules you fall under.

We used the SQF 7.2 checklist from the SQF website for our internal audit. Then when our first audit came up, the auditor used the same form.
