Gain the upper hand when you understand significant differences between self-inspections and internal audits and can identify and correct potential non-conformances before your certification auditor finds them. During this webinar, we will touch on how to manage your Internal Audit Program in coordination with other management systems, such as corrective action and management review. This presentation will be helpful for all internal audit team members and management who support the internal audit protocol.

Any type of audit of your work systems and practices can be a daunting process to go through. After 20+ years of auditing regulatory, compliance and certification standards, I have often reflected on why one company can obtain a good audit result when another company performs poorly.  What I have observed is that there are common practices that have contributed to both successful audit outcomes and audit failures. Regardless of the type of audit, there are a range of easy to implement strategies that will ensure your Company gets through this process. The strategies and information contained in this presentation will help you to avoid stupid non-conformances and be more organised for your next audit.

More than 70% of production facilities use compressed air in the manufacturing process. Experts like the Compressed Air & Gas Institute (CAGI) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) agree that the primary contaminants to monitor are particles, water, and oil (PWO). The primary sources of contamination in a compressed air supply include the intake air quality and the compressor itself. Other significant sources include distribution piping, storage receivers, and point-of-use items such as valves, gauges, flexible tubing, and fittings. Does your system filter these contaminants out? Where does your compressed air system add additional contaminants that need to be monitored or filtered? Are these contaminants detrimental to your product? Where are your critical control points (HACCP/HACPT), and are you monitoring them?

This basis for risk assessment is "Identify – Evaluate – Control" – this is true for any kind of risk, including food safety risks and risks associated with employee safety and health. In both cases catastrophe can occur due to technical failure or human error. A behavioral based risk management approach stipulates the human behavior is involved in all failure, even if it is classified as "technical". A behavioral based management system should not be separately implemented for food safety and employee safety. This redundancy prevents pooling of resources and lowers effectiveness. In this webinar we will focus on those areas that can and should be integrated and learn how to effectively implement an Integrated Management System.

FSMA is a "household" name now in the food industry, but are you ready for the culture change to the required Preventive Controls system versus what's been in place for years. Mid to small size companies are now on the clock to get their systems in order for the FDA's FSMA implementation. Developing a solid preventive controls program is the only way to meet the FDA's requirements.

New food safety regulations and changes to international Food Safety Management schemes are placing more of the responsibility for supplier control directly on the customer. The supply chain program must provide assurance that hazards requiring a control (in the supply chain) are significantly reduced or eliminated. Does your supplier control/assurance program meet these new requirements? How can you align your current supplier program with the new preventive controls? This session will help you to identify steps you can take to bring your supply-chain control program into compliance. The session will identify some tips and tools for identifying any gaps or opportunities within your current Food Safety Management System to ensure that you are in conformance with both the regulations and your GFSI program requirements.

Learn these mandates and standards stipulated by these certifying bodies and how you can prepare by applying this knowledge to an internal audit. Ruby Ochoa will address evolving compressed air standard confusions, monitoring programs, and the language your auditor might use. Be prepared to answer the questions your next audit might bring.
