Hello all, I'm after some clarification re SQF auditing frequency. Our last few audit scores have been as follows: March 2019 - 82 (complies) - next audit within 6 months September 2019 - 87 (good) - next audit within 12 months. Our next audit after this was scheduled for September 2020, but with our state closing down to international and interstate travellers, the audit got postponed several times, and we finally managed to get it done in April 2021. We came away with only 2 minor non-conformances, so should still be on a 12 month audit schedule. I have just received the certificate, which states that our next audit is due in September 2021 (so only 5 months from our last audit). When I questioned this with the certifying body, their answer is that 'the original audit cycle will revert after the extension of the 2020 audit, and we are still scheduled to be audited bi-annually". None of this makes sense to me; firstly, our last 2 audits have had a 'good' score, which to my understanding means annual audits. Secondly: our most recent audit was in April 2021 - whilst I understand that this audit should have taken place sooner, the situation in April 2021 was such that there were only 2 non-conformances noted (not in September, but in April, if you understand my thinking). Do I have any chance in challenging this with the certification body (who have been pretty useless so far in their communications tbh) or do I just grin and bear and prepare for another audit way sooner than we should?
