The more and more I search threads, the more I can't wrap my mind around the difference between policy and procedure.
I have been working with SQF for the past year and have worked on existing systems, I now have the opportunity to restructure our system and I am trying to figure out the best way to do it (the most simple). These are my options:
1. Include policy details in SOPs (this is what I have worked with in the past, sections denoting responsibilities, frequencies, etc)
2. Use the food safety manual as the policy manual- include responsibilities in each section of the manual
3. Create a policy documents and SOP documents- this is the way the current system is set up but it feels like everything is over documented and is just a copy paste of the code
I appreciate any guidance you can provide on clearing up policy vs procedure.
