Hi Guys

 

Can anyone tell me if your internal audit department is audited and by whom? This apparently is a requirement for us BRC v7 and IFS v6.

I would assume that the external audit performed by our CB would suffice, but who would qualify to audit the internal audit department? Do we need to source an external body, assuming that the company contains one independent internal auditor, and I would also assume that the manager(although qualified) of the internal auditor would also not be able to audit the internal auditor? Please advise.

 

Thanks, appreciate your comments.

Hi triona.naidoo,

 

You are IMEX extremely fortunate to possess enough auditors to form a Department.

 

But in view of yr query, was perhaps an unwise decision to "formalise" it ?


Kind Regards,
