SQFI’s Audit Database: Powered by ReposiTrak®

Why SQFI chose ReposiTrak

Exclusively endorsed by the Food Marketing Institute (FMI) as the industry standard food safety platform, it just made sense for SQFI to partner with ReposiTrak.  Together, we have integrated SQF audit management into ReposiTrak’s Compliance Management System.  This capability will benefit SQF’s thousands of registered suppliers, in addition to its certification bodies and auditors, in managing the audit process from initial request and payment, through collection of results and reporting.  As part of the initiative, ReposiTrak will host and provide exclusive access to SQF’s audit results database.

Looking to Register or Re-register with SQFI?

Companies that are new to SQF certification must first register with the SQF Assessment Database before their audit can commence. If you are looking for information about SQF certification steps and costs first, please visit SQFI.org.

To re-register for your annual audit, just login to ReposiTrak and click the “My Company” tab. Under “My Facilities”, click the “Action” button next to the facility that you wish to re-register.

The Silver Lining for SQF-registered Suppliers 


SQF-registered suppliers are now able to leverage ReposiTrak’s Compliance Management System to automate the management of their vendor required documents in one place.  This includes SQF-required documents such as a current register of approved vendors, along with 3rd party audits and food safety plans, in addition to other vital business documents, such as signed vendor agreements, certificates of liability insurance and letters of continuing guarantee that also reduce brand risk.

Get Instant Notifications for Suspensions or Withdrawals

Since ReposiTrak has partnered with SQFI to power its audit results database, we are now the first to know when a supplier’s status changes. Our goal is that when we get this information, we share it with our customers, so they can connect with their supplier and take action if needed.

Here are the SQF-certification alerts we make available to our customers:

1. Your supplier’s facility is no longer recognized as being SQF-certified. This could be due to a status change to “Withdrawn” or “Suspended”, or simply the supplier may have decided to let the certification expire and switch to another audit schema. Either way, you will now have this information in order to reach out to the supplier to understand their current status and plans.

2. Your supplier’s facility has been SQF-certified or re-certified. This email alert would provide the audit rating for your supplier. Ratings are as follows: Excellent, Good, and Complies.

3. Your Supplier’s facility has achieved a low score, or “Fails to Comply”. This has triggered a Surveillance audit put into place by SQFI. You will be notified when your supplier achieves certification.

What is the value of this? All supply chain participants want to know when a partner gains or loses their certification status in order to reduce their risk. This is a value ReposiTrak and SQFI can provide that is not available from any other service provider or audit schema. Simply put, ReposiTrak customers now even have more reason to require SQF audits for verification of their suppliers’ GFSI and FSMA compliance.

We take processes apart, rethink, rebuild, and deliver them back working smarter than ever before.
