The focus of this two-day workshop is on reviewing fundamentals and basic steps critical for internal auditors. This includes forming and asking questions, opening and closing meetings, writing non-conformances, preparing reports and an introduction to process auditing. Auditing concepts are applicable to numerous internal and external auditing approaches, including those compliant with HACCP, GFSI approved schemes (i.e. FSSC, IFS, BRC, SQF, etc.), ISO standards, and specific company second party (i.e. suppliers, corporate programs, etc.) standards and protocols. Class content and specifics are adapted based on the needs of our workshop attendees, as well as, case studies discussed are focused on their particular industries. The standard currently used by the company or the future standard to be implemented is also discussed during this workshop. Debby Newslow, primary instructor, shares her insights based on her first-hand experience and information gleaned from her latest book, a CRC Press publication: Food Safety Management Programs: Applications, Best Practices, and Compliance.
