THE FSATM AUDIT
Safe food is a fundamental right and any suppliers in the food chain have an ethical, moral and legal obligation to provide safe food to all consumers.
Increased consumer awareness, globalisation and the demand for safe food has led the food industry to implement effective food safety management systems. Many standards have been developed in different countries by different organisations in the food sector. This has led to a large number of standards that make it, from a cost and resource point of view, almost impossible to comply with.
After extensive research and development, the FSA™ audit was modelled on food safety certification, based on internationally recognised standards.
Considering all the relevant standards, regulatory requirements and a broad base of customer requirements, a progressive tiered approach to auditing, reporting and certifying food safety management has been launched.
The FSATM audit report is unique in that:
- Documentation requirements are reported separately from Implementation requirements.
What are the actual practices implemented
- This will allow for more comprehensive decision making, interpretation and diverse supplier audit programs.
- Mark deductions are based on risk and are also classified as a Major or a minor non-conformance.
- These results are also reported per element, per section.
- Graphs and charts allow for quick reference and trend analysis.
