Hello i wanted to ask how much time is required in order to achieve the certification in a low risk facility? management is full committed but only one person is dedicated 5 hours a day to develop and implement all the requirements.
Thank you i just need an average time nothing too exactly.
IMEX it is probably more meaningful to ask how long your Company will give you. IMEX somewhere between 6-9 months.
I had a quick look at a few Consultant sites and there appeared to be a noticeable absence of predicted Qualification times. Too many variables presumably.
There are so many unknowns in yr query, eg -
(1) How much of the SQF documentation required already exists ?.
(2) How much of the SQF Validation/Verification Data already exists ?
(3) How much SQF-related help you can directly call on regarding documentation / implementation.
Just as a vaguely related analogy, here is a quite detailed evaluation of the time to implement iso9001/HACCP in a seafood processing facility-
You might consider allocating your own estimated times into the chart.
Alternatively you might consider the SQF Certification Package available on this site which comes with considerable free Guidance from its author - Tony-C. Yr query might be (approximately) answerable in advance. See -
