Hi Moura -

 

from clause 3.4.1 -
 

 

At a minimum, the programme shall include at least four different audit dates spread throughout the year.
The frequency at which each activity is audited shall be established in relation to the risks associated with
the activity and previous audit performance. All activities shall be covered at least once each year.

 

 


Kind Regards,

 

Charles.C

As indicated by Charles, both of these, to an extent.

The four per year requirement prevents you doing all the audits on one or two days and then having no idea what's happening in your site for the other 363/364 days per year (in theory at least ;) ), but as with everything BRC related they would like you to determine the actual applicable frequency based on risk.
