July 12th 2013BREAKING NEWS. ASDA have announced that all food manufacturers making ASDA brand products will, from 1st October 2013, be required to have their BRC audits undertaken unannounced!. This requirement will be for the full Option 1 audit. Only a maximum of 15 days can be blocked out from the audit plan by prior arrangement with your certification body, and the absence of key management should not be considered a justifiable cause for an audit not to be appropriate. The unannounced audit will typically take place within the last 3 or 4 months of the certification cycle, e.g. if your last audit was in January, you unannounced audit could be anytime between September/October and January. Usually the audit will commence within 30 minutes of the auditor arriving on site, note that denying the auditor access to site will result in the site’s certification being suspended. Remember we are here to help – we have the full Level 2 Food Safety and other courses available to assist you in providing the training required to employees, we also have the brand new Allergen Awareness 45 online course available to help fulfil the BRC Allergen training requirements.
