Gearing up for initial SQF certification for Storage and Distribution and had a question about MCS. We have it written into our program and on the schedules themselves that if we are not working or if the cleaning item was inspected, but not needed, then leave space blank. Only initial a task when you are present and when it needed done and was completed.
I am ok with this, however, in previous experiences at other places I have had auditors make it seem like blank spaces were not ok and you needed to mark something by the task, either N/A, Out, Not working, Not needed, etc. Wanted to know some others thoughts on this.
I feel if it is written in the SOP and also on the schedules, there should be no issue. Thoughts?
