Check post 2 from SQFconsultant.  Good general explanation.

Audit Scoring Deviations from the SQF Code impacts whether the site passes the site audit. These are classified into three different categories for non-conformities.

1. Minor non-conformity: An omission or deficiency in the SQF System that produces unsatisfactory conditions that if not addressed may lead to a risk to food safety but not likely to cause a system element breakdown.

2. Major non-conformity: is an omission or deficiency in the SQF System producing unsatisfactory conditions that carry a food safety risk and are likely to result in a system element breakdown.

3. Critical non-conformity: is a breakdown of control (s) at a critical control point, a pre-requisite program, or other process step and judged likely to cause a significant public health risk and/or where product is contaminated.

Is there a document or guide that will show how sections/clauses/elements are graded with minor/major/critical?

 

For example.  Lets say we are not meeting 11.2.5.3, how would I know beforehand if that is a minor, major or critical finding?
