Internal audits are a requirement for all food safety management systems (FSMS), like:

ASC Consultants can assist with all aspects of internal auditing, whether you consider acquiring certification for a FSMS or need help with your existing FSMS.

Our internal auditing services are especially effective for pre-certification readiness. It will give your company the opportunity to eliminate any serious non-conformances before the actual audit.

If your company consider implementing a food safety management system (FSMS), you will need to perform an initial GAP audit to determine the gaps in your current system.

A Gap audit is mainly used to determine the degree of conformance of your organization to the requirements of a specific FSMS. 

Gap audits mainly concentrates on a review of your company’s documents and “show me the evidence” activities.

Our GMP audits comprise of a detailed check to see if your food handling company, as well as all food handlers are complying with the requirements of Good Manufacturing Practices.

Our hygiene audits (inspections) are specifically designed to assess the cleanliness of food handling premises.

This also includes the assessment of;

  • the personal hygiene practices of food handlers;
  • the effectiveness of cleaning and and sanitising of utensils, equipment and surfaces; and
  • the cross-contamination risks within the food handling premises, including storage, receiving and distribution areas.

ASC Consultants help with the monitoring of ethical practises in business by conducting ethical audits on suppliers as well as offering pre-readiness certification audits for standards such as SIZA and SMETA.

International standards require that an organisation sources a product from a reputable supplier. This means the supplier must have certification recognised by the Standard in place OR via a Supplier audit.

This ensures that the raw material your organisation receives, complies with its own standards and does not compromise the safety, quality and legality of the end product.

ASC Consultants can assist you with compiling the supplier audit checklist and conducting the audit on behalf of your organisation. This ensures objectivity and certainty.
