We are an SQF certified facility and I was wondering if anyone has any information on training requirements of substitutes.
My substitute for SQF practitioner last had her HACCP training over 5 years ago.
I was wondering if the training requirements of substitutes were the same as the people usually responsible for the tasks. Especially since she has never needed to replace me for more than a week, it seems wasteful for a small company to have to spend double the training costs of courses for a just-in-case type situation.
However I do not want to risk a non conformity if this is something that is considered a requirement.
Has anyone encountered this situation, and do you have any information that could help?
