Where can I download Edition 8?
Edition 8 can be found on the SQFI website at www.sqfi.com/documents.
All previous versions of the SQF Code can also be found by following that link.

How much documentation is required to update our current SQF system to edition 8? For example, should my system review be against edition 7.2 or edition 8?
Any auditors auditing against edition 8 of the SQF Code will be required to audit against all requirements (new and existing) that are contained in edition 8. Sites should evaluate their systems to ensure they meet the requirements of edition 8. It is recommended that there be at a minimum of 90 days of documentation to support any new program or requirement however that is not a requirement. The actual number depends on the program, policy or procedure that is being implemented.

What is the difference between the modules and the Food Safety Codes?
Modules are the good industry practices that are specific to the industry sector. The modules contain the good agriculture practices, good manufacturing practices, good distribution practices, and good retail practices that the site shall meet in order to achieve SQF certification. To determine the appropriate the module the site shall refer to any of the SQF Codes, Edition 8, Part A, Section 1.2. The Food Safety Code is the site-specific reference that outlines the requirements that each site shall meet when implementing and maintaining the SQF Code requirements.

What is the best way to determine which food sector category and modules apply to my site?
The best way to determine which Food Sector Category bests fits your site, please reference the Food Sector Category list and description listed in any of the SQF Codes, Edition 8, Appendix 1. This list identifies the category and provides descriptions, product examples and relevant modules. It would be best to consult with your certification body to confirm the designation of the site’s food sector category.

If I pass the SQF exam, will that make me an SQF Practitioner?

Which exam or course should I buy if I want to be SQF certified?
