I recently came onboard to a food manufacturing facility as the FS & Reg Aff. Coordinator. This is my first exposure to the manufacturing sector and have spent months in training for SQF, HACCP, PCQI, FSVP, IA, etc.
Have spent some time developing the COVID 19 plan as well as other tasks and requests for the facility and have not being able to leave the desk.
Also, have been updating the current SQF system and came across the EM program and realized no sampling have been conducted since early April. According to our program, we are to take samples twice a month.
Is there a way we can successfully justify for the missing samples without compromise the SQF certificate during an audit? If there is no way and we are in danger of loosing our certification, please advise, because I do not want to be the on the chopping block for this.
