What happens next?

Pre Assessment Audit
During your pre assessment audit your SQF auditor will analyse your current systems compared to the standard and assess your implementation. The systems which are required are built off a HACCP plan, so it is crucial to already have one which has been implemented throughout the business.

Once this audit has been completed, your auditor will issue you with a report which will highlight any non-conformances.
SQF Audit
During your SQF audit, the auditor collects evidence to confirm that your company and employees are adhering to your management plan. This rigorous process entails a variety of investigative techniques, such as conducting interviews with your management team, analysing your systems, and engaging in discussions with non-management staff to evaluate their understanding of relevant policies and procedures.
SQF Certification
Once the auditor is satisfied with your systems, you have officially passed the SQF certification. Unlike ISO certifications there are no surveillance or recertification audits. Your SQF certification will last for one year and if you wish to renew it, you will be required to undertake another SQF audit.
