We recently had our initial SQF certification audit. We received a minor N/C for 18.104.22.168 because we have not conducted any supplier audits. I am just wondering if 22.214.171.124 supersedes 126.96.36.199 because my interpretation of that is that we are allowed to base our approved suppliers off prior performance.
I have done the supplier audits in the past but because we changed facility addresses, everything from the previous address is no longer applicable here, at least according to the auditors.
When a company changes an address the program pretty much gets revamped and the facility is required to contact the CB to get details on next steps prior to having your next audit. I have seen companies change addresses, white out documents and attempt to shoe horn the programs that applied to the past facility to the new facility - too sad actually.
As to the two code sets - they are not equal - your 188.8.131.52 would be applicable to past performance and other things while 184.108.40.206 calls for audits.
