Course description

Unnanounced Workshops - In-house

The protocol for the BRC Standard identifies three different audit options:

  • An announced audit - where the company and the Certification Body agree the date for the audit
  • An unannounced audit option 1 – The company will not be notified of the date of the audit,
  • An unannounced audit option 2 – the audit will be split into two sections. The unannounced audit will cover GMP and production areas, followed by an announced audit of the site’s systems and procedures

This course will provide delegates with details of the unannounced audit processes, the options available to companies opting to go down the unannounced route, with a focus on option 1.  The course also covers how to manage the audit process, following up and closing out of non- conformities and the certification process.
