I work as BRC Specialist. Not a long ago, I implemented BRC food standard in confectionery company.
In our team, I' m the only one internal auditor of BRC.
Few months ago I was on external training about changes in BRC. I told about our situation about internal audits. The coach said, that I couldn't do internal audits, because I implemented BRC standard. We decide to start cooperated with outside company, which made for us this things.
During certificated audit, we heard from auditor that I can made internal audits and it's not necessery to cooperate with external company. In her opinion, as a person who oversees the standard, all the same time I can audit our plant.
I write because I got suggestions for implementing the standard BRC in another comapny. This time I will be a consultant, whoes help to implement standard. I would like to add that I will not be employee this second company only conultant (external services).
They asked me about internal audits. Now I'm confused, can I do internal audit or not. Has anyone had a similar problem with internal audits? As a person whoes implement BRC, can I do audits?
I will be grateful for help.
