Hi all! 

 

How long are you spending on your monthly internal system audits, monthly GMP/facility audits, and annual SQF system review audit?

 

Thanks!

At current post, it only takes me about 40 hours/year combined

 

However, at PP, it was 60% of my job..........large poultry facility with almost 400 employees from slaughter to finished goods of all kinds

 

so i was on the floor roughly 2 full days a week and at my desk the other 3


Please stop referring to me as Sir/sirs

Takes us 3 man hours / week for internal Lean audits (which cover most of section 11 requirements in SQF). 

It takes us roughly 40 man hours to audit all the SQF systems in entirety / year.

Much has to do with size and scope of company. I have witnessed and participated in 10 min to 2 hour internals and 1 day to 3 day annual SQF system reviews.


Kind regards,
