Course Information

Course Introduction

This course will equip the learner with the necessary skills to become a skilled and effective internal and supplier auditor. The focus is on determining a company’s current internal auditing programme weaknesses and providing alternative methods and the necessary tools for improvement.

Delegates will receive useful auditing templates and be required to perform an actual internal audit as part of the assessment process.

Internal and supplier auditing creates an opportunity for food-handling organisations to verify and continually improve their Food Safety Management System. Most international standards require that an organisation conduct Internal audits to enable them to pass an external audit. Another requirement is that internal audits must be conducted by suitably qualified auditors.

Even if you have an internal auditing system in place, the question is, is it effective and are your internal auditors adequately motivated and trained to perform this task?
