I post the organizational chart in the office and in the plant. Do I need to have SR. management sign off on the form as a verification?

Technically speaking - no.

I would think the SQF practitioner who is designing and maintain the SQF system is "senior enough" for this.

 

You'll have to show the org chart and JD's are as described anyhow.

Not from any standard requirement but from best practice view, it makes sense to include approving authority and effective date.

We have our plant manager sign ours along with the Mission Statement.  If you are to be audited under 8.1 you should be okay to not have it signed but it could only help you to have it signed as it helps to show that Senior management supports the SQF System.  In edition 9 the wording is a little different and in section 2.1.1.3 it states "Site management shall ensure departments and operations are appropriately staffed and organizationally aligned to meet food safety objectives."  It would be simple to demonstrate this by having your senior site manager sign off on the organizational chart.

We only have sr. management sign the commitment statement. I actually don't have a physical copy of the org chart. Our is electronically generated in real time, which has made it easy to not have to worry about changes in staffing.
