We are SQF Food & FSMA compliant. Is there a requirement  to review your finished specs & labels annually?

Hi,

I hope this will help

SQF 9.0 MODULE 2

2.3.2.10

Specifications for raw materials and packaging, chemicals, processing aids, contract services, and finished products shall be reviewed as changes occur that impact product safety. Records of reviews shall be maintained. A list of all the above specifications shall be maintained and kept current.

Can't speak to SQF, but BRCGS requires review of specifications every three years, or of course when/if something changes.

For SQF I would recommend yearly as that is a standard that the auditors I have dealt with expect and I don't have to support a longer time frame; just simpler for me since we do not have that many products.  However if you define in your program or procedures a certain time frame over one year or when changes occur and you can support that the longer time frame is sufficient then you should be okay.
