Hello All, 

 

Can someone please advise me on the proficiency testing part of the SQF 9.0 edition? As I understand it, it is only for facilities that have internal labs. Does proficiency testing also apply for facilities that use 3rd party ISO17025 accredited labs? We were given a minor for not having it but we don's conduct internal lab testing.

That is not correct

 

Any "technical" roles (qc techs, lead hand doing seal checks, CCP monitoring) all need annual proficiency testing..............once a year you observe them doing the task----------did they follow the SOP  yes or no 


Please stop referring to me as Sir/sirs

Hi Brenda,

 

Opinions vary. I suggest you look at this post/thread and sublinks -
