Edition 7.1 of the SQF Code applies to all industry sectors and replaces the SQF 2000 Code edition 6 and SQF 1000 Code edition 5. A few significant changes include the addition of the feed and pet food modules (modules 3 and 4) and the harmonized produce standard (module 7H); the requirement for auditors to review the entire facility, regardless of the scope of certification (Part A, 2.7); the addition of a requirement for facilities to report all regulatory warning letters to SQF (Part A, 5.3); and an added element that requires the facility to follow the requirements of Appendix 3: SQF Quality Shield and Logo Rules of Use (22.214.171.124). Edition 7.1 takes effect on July 1, 2013, to which the new modules will be available for use.
