Online SQF Edition 8
This training meets the requirements for an SQF Practitioner.
It means that this certificate fulfills for the requirements.
The SQF Institute has released the new version of the code, SQF Edition 8. Companies are expected to begin their transition to
the new edition. However, certification audits that are conducted before January 2, 2018 will continue to be audited to Edition 7.2
of the Code.
Audits conducted January 3, 2018 or later, will be audited to Edition 8.

What is New? An overview summary of the changes
SQF has updated the code with 4 goals in mind.
to better fit the needs of industry sectors,
to take into account the latest regulatory requirements such as FSMA,
to encourage continuous improvement
to meet requirements in the new GFSI Benchmarking Requirements in GFSI V. 7.

The biggest changes are that the schemes are no longer referred to as Level 1, 2 and 3 and the code is now divided into different
documents for the different industry sectors and quality. You will find 6 separate codes:
Primary Production (Modules 2+ one of: 5, 6, 7, 7H, 8) now referred to as Food Safety Fundamentals) a
Manufacturing (Modules 2+ one of: 3, 4, 9, 10, 11). Now includes Pet Food and Animal Feed.
Storage and Distribution (Modules 2+ 12)
Manufacture of Packaging Materials (Modules 2 + 13)
Retail (new, Module 15)
SQF Quality Code: A company will implement the quality code (formerly level 3) after achieving certification to one of the Food
Safety Schemes.
You may download the SQF 8 Code for free at SQFI.
Training FAQs
Do I need Edition 7.2 or Edition 8.0?
If your company’s SQF Certification audit is in 2017, your company will be audited to Edition 7.2 If it is in 2018, your company will be audited to
the Edition 8 requirements.

If I am trained on Edition 7.2 do I need to be retrained on Edition 8?
Being trained on Edition 8 is an excellent way to learn the new requirements and demonstrate knowledge of SQF version 8. The code requires
that the practitioner understands requirements, but does not identify specific training for upgrading to version 8.

Is there a class or templates that only cover the changes?
At this time we have full training courses and documentation packages, and not a training or documents focused only on the changes. If you
are interested in using our documentation and training, it will cover all of the requirements of Edition 8. Trainees would be trained on all of the
requirements. To use the document templates, you would choose if you want to use all of the procedures and forms, or adopt some of them
and then make modifications to your existing procedures where that is more efficient for you. In both cases our documentation would give you
good examples of documentation that describes compliant processes.
