We had an ownership change a few years ago, and yes, you need to update any affected paperwork that mentions ownership, or leadership changes.

I agree with MDaleDFF that you'll want to update relevant affected paperwork, and also minute any significant changes/considerations as part of your meeting program.


If you haven't already done so, you may also need to notify your certification body - see 5.1 (communication with certification bodies) on pages 77/78 of the standard.


Edit: I'm looking at the wrong standard. It's page 82 for the Packaging one, but the same requirement as the Food standard.

Contact your CB to inform of ownership change and confirm that the certification will automatcally carry - not all do and instead require a completely new audit and certification.
