I am new to SQF. My previous experience has been around FSSC 22000, I remember in FSSC 22000 standard, we require to have some sort of Change Management process where QA/Food Safety Team must be informed of any changes to product, raw material, and equipment. I believe this was either in internal communication clause or its own clause. I no longer have access to the FSSC code (without having to pay to access) for me to confirm. However, I am perusing through SQF ver 8.1 and I cannot find similar requirement (which i find very strange). Am I missing something or is it just have different wording?
The reason I am asking is I've been fighting with the maintenance team to inform appropriate people (safety, QA, etc) when they put in a new piece of equipment or when they replace something in the equipment that is not a "replacement in kind." I was going to use SQF requirement as my ammo but I guess I cant find that requirement specifically.
