Can anyone share how they conduct there annual review of the SQF Manuel?
We have 3 large binders that hold all policy's/controlled documents. We have gotten away with a document in the front of the binders that says "the policy's and procedures in this book have by reviewed by XXXX and on this date XXXX." But technically we are not reviewing all information in the manuals in one day.
We do hold monthly SQF meetings that cover Complaints, Internal Audit Findings, CAPAs, Environmental/Micro, other general topics and follow ups.
Our internal audits are conducted using the code format. An element is audited every couple of weeks and carried out with corrective actions.
And we have a quarterly management review that covers changes to FSMS policies, procedures, specifications, FSP, HACCP, Environmental, Pest Control, Finished product testing, Mock Recalls, Vendor Evaluation, internal & external audits, GMPs, complaints, Hold Log.
From my experience the auditor has always requested 1 date the policy's and procedures were reviewed.
I am looking forward to hearing how others do there annual review of there Food Safety Manuel's.
