I just registered with this site as to exchange ideas about BRC and Global gap audits. We are a small apple farmer in the New York State, United States, that has 350 acres of apples of which 60% are exported to various countries. I have been audited by third party auditing for 5 years. Still working on improving our systems and templates to simplify the auditing process. Internal auditing is a weakness of ours and we would appreciate any advice anyone has to offer.

Hi and welcome to the forums.

What aspects of your internal auditing program do you consider to be weak?

Regards,
Simon

Dear HJD,
Welcome to the forum :welcome: .

You have mentioned that your internal auditing is a weakness - Is it due to lack of people skills or lack of systems?. If its lack of people skill - why can't you contact an outside person as a consultant for doing regular internal audits and to give input for improving your system. As well you can also a keep a key internal person trained for this as a primary contact who will work mainly for this. Once you are confident that your system is well established, you can use this key person for doing internal audit.

Good luck & Rgds,
anish
