Training Course Outline:

The Practical Supplier Auditor Online 4-hour training webinar is suitable for those wishing to conduct audits of suppliers either to evaluate a new supplier’s ability to meet your contractual/food safety & quality requirements or to re-evaluate an existing supplier’s performance.

At the IFSQN we pride ourselves on providing practical training rather than theoretical. We are pleased to announce an online training webinar that will show you the main steps in the process of supplier evaluation and audit through clear and simple examples.

In the first part of the training participants will receive instruction on the implementation of different models for effective supplier evaluation; including evaluation of service providers with complete categorization of all suppliers.

Models and processes of supplier evaluation are compatible with the requirements of the GFSI certification schemes such as IFS, BRC, SQF, FSSC 22000 and ISO 22000, which will help you implement them in your company easily.

In the second part of the training participants will receive instruction on developing an audit program, auditors, audit checklists and an audit plan. All this will include practical examples and the possibility to get an insight from the lead auditor perspective.
