This is kind of a loaded question...

Are you looking to audit your own facility? Are you currently SQF certified? Do you yourself have any formal SQF training? Are you looking for the template an SQF auditor would be using to audit your facility?

Internal inspections are a bit like fingerprints, each facility will be different. Your SQF program audit has to cover and include verification/validation on your SQF program, see second link below.

Also note that all personnel involved in conducting an internal audit need to have documented internal auditing training as per 2.5.4.2

I am still having trouble. I just don't know how to perform Internal audit. I do have internal audit sheet crated using SQF sections. However I don't know how to perform it.

You might want to go to training. Have you been through a SQF audit before? What they checked during the walk around - that's what you need to check.

Maybe this course could help. Cheaper than a consultant which is another option.

Here's a great place to start

or

FYI SQF internal audits are actually a REASSSMENT. If you google HACCP reassessment you'll find tons more tips/tricks/templates

 

KEY ASPECTS OF A REASSESSMENT OR INTERNAL AUDIT
 reviews the following key aspects during each reassessment or internal audit:
 
Selected standard operating procedures / GMPs
HACCP plan(s) if required during that session
On-site observations to confirm the accuracy and implementation of these procedures and materials
