This was our 3rd audit, next one is the unannounced audit.
At my work we make food contact labels, and because we are essential we haven't closed or slowed down at all during this pandemic. In fact we've hired more.. no cases but a hand full got tested with negative results.
Auditor arrived this week, and in Manitoba we went to code orange so we were wondering if he could even get out of the airport. Due to his position being essential he was permitted however, it was correspondence that the auditor showed at the airport between our company and Health Service Canada that actually let me thru. Otherwise he would have to self isolate and all that.
We did our opening and closing meetings via zoom.
He wore a mask entire time, and so did our SQF Practitioner. 7 minor non-conformances, however ended up with a higher score (93) than our last audit (91).
Of course most of the non-conformances are arguable, such as cracks on the floor, some daylight cracks in the weather stripping at receiving and a door he feels should be locked at all times, ink jugs on the floor when running SQF labels (there were 8 different colors and wasn't mentioned in previous audits).
Over all, he was pleased to see our teamwork and management commitment.
