Usually when we do supply chain audits and the supplier happens to be a trader, we check the company's adherence to Good Warehousing Practices.
I am not sure if there is a certifying body there who can give you at least a certification for this, but it would be good.
We don't normally expect a trading company to be HACCP certified (due to cost implications + tons of documentations to keep), but we do check if supplier is "HACCP-certifiable" where applicable.
Thank you for your response.
But in this case the company doesn´t have a warehouse, they dont even seen the product (most of the times), they only assure that the product stays in a supplier/company for storage the products (ambiente and cold temperature).
Im not looking for a certification, i just want to be sure that it is not a legal requirement to have HACCP in place....because the company dont "touch" the product.
What you are saying is that in your case, you check the warehouse good practice, because they have their own warehouse, right??? and if they dont? how do you audit??
