About SQF Code Edition 9
About the SQF Food Safety Code: Food Manufacturing
The SQF Code is a site-specific, process and product certification standard with an emphasis on the systematic application of CODEX Alimentarius Commission HACCP principles and guidelines for control of food safety hazards.
SQF certification assesses and assures the implementation of a site’s food safety plan and confirms the site has the necessary tools and training to manage food safety.
A site’s achievement of SQF food safety certification indicates a commitment to:
1. Produce safe food.
2. Comply with the requirements of the SQF Code.
3. Comply with applicable food legislation.
Edition 9 of the SQF Food Safety Code: Food Manufacturing has just been published and is simpler, more streamlined code that is in alignment with GFSI Benchmarking Requirements Version 2020 which were launched in February. The Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) Benchmarking Requirements are a widely-accepted benchmark for food safety certification programs. GFSI-recognized Certification Program Owners are required to address each key element outlined in GFSI Benchmarking Requirements Version 2020, the main change being the requirement for a food safety culture. Part III of the GFSI Benchmarking Requirements defines the key elements required in a Certification Program in relation to:
– Hazard and Risk Management Systems (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) or HACCP based systems)
– Food Safety Management Systems;
– Good Industry Practices, Good Manufacturing Practices, Good Agricultural Practices.
Changes in the SQF Food Safety Code: Food Manufacturing Edition 9
Changes in Edition 9 have seen significant restructuring and alignment of requirement, these can be seen in the summary tables at the bottom. The main changes in requirements, as we see it, are as follows:
Major addition for senior site management to lead and support a food safety culture within the site.
Added requirement site is staffed and organized to meet food safety objectives.
Requirement for a nominated substitute for the SQF practitioner.
When developing products, a requirement for product formulations to be developed by authorized persons.
New requirements for the competency and proficiency of internal laboratories and product analyses, sampling and testing methods to be in accordance with the applicable requirements of ISO/IEC 17025.
In the new requirements, there is considerable focus on approving and checking labels and getting product labelling right including finished product approval by qualified company personnel, product release to include a procedure to confirm that product labels comply with the applicable food legislation.
There are emphasized labeling requirements and checks during operations to ensure that the correct product is in the correct package and with the correct label, particularly during product changeovers to be inspected and approved by an authorized person and for label use to be reconciled.
