I just had my SQF desk audit last week and I got 1 Non conformance for not having a procedure for Validation and another Non conformance for not having a procedure for Verification. I have a Verification and Validation schedule where I explain what the validation & verification activities are, their frequency and who is responsible for those. The auditor said that he was missing the procedure "structure" with scope, responsibilities and procedure itself. My question is, do yo have a generic procedure that covers validation & verification for all the SQF program or do you have a procedure that specifies how to validate & verify each single section of the SQF?
Thank you for your help.
