I'm pretty new with all of this SQF and HACCP stuff. My company just finished up their certification audit a couple of weeks ago. I'm working on the non-conformance's and I've been hung up on one all week. We need to improve our internal audit schedule but to be completely honest I have no idea what it should include or even look like. Can anyone help me? What I have so far is the area being audited (all of our work cells and the Pre-req programs from section 6), the frequency, method and auditor...is this enough?

This is the very excellent document Caz referred to:

Internal Audit Risk Assessment Template

Is this the sort of thing you were looking for?

Simon

Interesting! This seems to be a risk assessment for auditing documents. What about auditing processes/departments in the facility? Any ideas for that? I've used an FMEA format myself, with some changes to criteria (customization).

Would it be possible to share this Jon?

Jessica can you confirm what exactly you were looking for here?

Simon

Dear Simon,

I suspect that there are many interpretations of “internal audit’. One would hv thought that any particular standard would clarify the intended meaning (like management review for example) but apparently not.

Here is a general presentation aimed at “food safety and quality management” for agriculture with several practical examples for internal audit. Nonetheless, I would not claim that it is the “correct” approach although I have previously “borrowed” some of the principles myself for BRC. Obviously, if one can achieve the desired result via a documentation oriented audit only, this is surely the right way to go !

**I would also be very interested to see Jons document / procedure**

Rgds / Charles.C


Kind Regards,

 

Charles.C
