Are You Audit Ready?

FSMA audits are about the documentation of the facility. The requirements dictate that data from different departments must be gathered in one place. Maintaining this information requires a concentrated effort and plan. A plant must define protocols: a “Review Protocol” to review risk points and adjust, a “Self-Audit Protocol” to confirm consistent food safety, and a “GMP Protocol” to confirm operation practices. The goal is to never let an auditor find something you aren’t already correcting.
