This section will address how to implement an SQF System. As you will learn, there are 6 major steps involved with implementing an SQF System. The first step involves obtaining management commitment. Management commitment sets the tone for your System and will help when resources are needed during the implementation process. Implementing an SQF System is not an easy task.

This is called performing a gap assessment.
