Principles of Internal Auditing


6 hours and 30 minutes

Course Overview

Conducting internal audits with a food safety focus is required to determine whether your food safety management system is implemented effectively. The analysis of results is critical to ensure that the food safety plan continues to be effective. Challenges to achieving continual improvement in food safety programs can occur due to improperly conducted and documented internal audits.

Through interactive exercises, case studies, scenarios and quizzes, you will gain the knowledge and skills to internally audit your food safety management system effectively to ensure food safety and compliance with regulatory and GFSI-benchmarked food safety standard requirements.
