Live Webinar: Understanding Unannounced Audits – a mandatory Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) requirement

Unannounced audits are not a new concept, and they were already mandated as an option in previous GFSI benchmarking requirements. With the release of version 2020.1, this requirement evolved and became mandatory at regular intervals. As a result, certification program owners have updated their programs to ensure compliance. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, full implementation of this requirement was temporarily halted; however, the lifting of restrictions has put this requirement back on the agenda of certified organizations and certification bodies.

In this webinar, you will be able to comprehend the concept of unannounced audits from a GFSI perspective, as well as how the new benchmarking element is reflected across the various Food Safety Certification Programs. Additionally, you will learn how to prepare your organization to comply with the new requirement.

  • Deep-dive into the Mandatory GFSI requirement
