I just completed BRC announced audit with a grade AA and 1 NC raised. We are a medium size family run business who have always been on the announced system. We have decided to go unannounced which has now been enforced by a customer requirement for 2018.
I have a strong FSQM system in place which shows from our most recent score in our audit but due to the size of the of business with only 3 management members including myself we may be put under extreme pressure if a BRC audit arrives and I am not on site or available due to holidays.
Along with my FSQM I want to put in place a dummys guide of how and where to find SOPs, records, procedures etc against the BRC standard if I wasn't available for the audit. A guide for the other managers to help them through the audit.
I am the only member of the QA team and I am the manger of this area - the other two are production based.
Has anybody got any templates, examples or guides to what I have described. Also, has anybody put a similar guide in place and has it worked? Suggestions are very much welcome.
