Thanks very much for an informative and practical presentation Gary. :clap:

Your questions and comments from the webinar:

  • Is it mandatory to have outside training for internal auditors?
  • How would you recommend controlling hand written changes to official documents BRC 3.3.1?
  • Some of the food safety standards are advising that the auditors should not audit their own work. if somebody is auditing his own system, is that not contracting the standard and how about the impartiality being maintained by the internal auditor?
  • This is an excellent presentation.  How can we get a copy to use with an SQF team?
  • What could be the assessment results on the part where the MR justifies that there is no input on customer feedback issued?
  • You mentioned getting people from other departments to audit (record review, product review, etc.). Would you suggest something similar for checking QA reviewed documents?
  • In the BRC standard, the clause sometimes seem to overlap each other. Is it ok to cross reference clauses that have procedures written that cover more than one clause? Or must there be something written for every clause in the BRC standard?
  • Thanks so much. This conference is great!
