Five Tips to Passing a Third-Party Audit

Successfully passing a third-party audit is the most important task for food processing plant and facility managers. Here are five tips for passing audits from the quality experts at Sprague:

1. Conduct a practice audit ahead of time according to the most recent standards.

2. Review the physical conditions of your plant to check if your pest exclusion protocols are proficient to deliver the intended results.

3. Thoroughly review your maintenance records to verify they are in order and easily accessible.

4. Do a walkthrough of your plant prior to the audit/inspection and observe it through the eyes of the auditor – be prepared for last minute surprises.

5. Have your pest management partner with you on the day of the audit/inspection to present the plant’s pest management records and answer the auditor’s questions directly.
