We recently completed an unannounced SQF audit with a Costco addendum. During the audit, the auditor informed us that Costco and his CB were working together to 'trial' a new concept with the scoring. Any findings on the addendum would result in a deduction on your SQF score in the future. He said that we would be trialing it this year and that it may be implemented as a permanent addition next year. Those were his exact words. At the end of the audit, we learned that our Costco deduction resulted in a SQF deduction (Section 126.96.36.199). We could find no evidence of a change to the code; any reference to customer requirements in section 188.8.131.52, or reference to this type of scoring in any Costco documents or communications, nor could the auditor. We argued the point to no avail and are now in the process of appealing it.
Please let me know if you have any relevant information for this alleged change.
