It is not from SQF, exclusions go thru the CB.
You have to show written cause for exclusion.
However a client excluded their 75% of the facility that was storing packaging and janitorial chemicals by simply defining the scope to only food storage -- those areas were checked by the auditor but only to ensure that food was not being stored in those areas.
It will be up to the auditor to accept or reject your written basis for allowing employees to wear those items. I have never seen a straight non-open, non-touch DC allow those items.
