Hello, does anyone have an example of internal audit risk assessment for a low risk facility producing low risk product? All examples that I have seen out there have very in depth internal audit program which requires quarterly, 6-monthly internal audits.

You are talking about two different things - which one do  you need a guide on - risk assessment or internal audit?

Thanks for clarifying. I need guidance on risk assessment to determine the frequency of internal audits. For example, I have all BRC clause listed (from 1-7), and the senior management section is low risk, so we only audit it annually. Is there a risk assessment template out there for low risk facility?

Hi kelia,

 

IIRC, based on the BRC-intended interpretation of clause 3.4.1 (eg "covering") / previous IA-related threads, a sigle annual audit is no longer acceptable to BRC.

 

This is why the examples posted on the Forum are not trivially simple.

 

The attachment in this link may help to explain BRC's thinking -
