Based on the evidence collected by the SQF food safety auditor, each applicable clause of the SQF certification food safety audit is automatically scored in the audit report.
The score is based on the following factors:
0 – aspect meets the criteria
1 – aspect does not meet the criteria due to minor variations (minor non-conformance)
5 – aspect does not meet the criteria (major non-conformance)
50 – aspect does not meet the criteria (critical non-conformance)
A single rating is calculated for your site audit as (100 – N) where N is the sum of the individual rating criteria allocated.
