Whether you do business domestically or around the globe, staying on top of food safety requirements is a full-time job. In addition to a litany of government and regulatory compliance, food processors today also face the challenge of navigating complex third-party audit standards. These audits are a critical part of doing business and the cost for not meeting the requirements can be extremely high: an audit fail can damage your relationships with customers, hinder your chances of getting new business, and even damage employee morale.

In the third installment of Rentokil Steritech’s Food Processing Webinar Series, “How to Recover from a Food Safety Audit Fail,” John Kukoly, Americas Director from BRC Global Standards will review what issues might be a cause for a third-party audit failure and what to do if you fail an audit. Judy Black, VP of Technical Services, Rentokil North America, will join him and discuss how to take steps to recover from a third-party audit failure, specifically in the area of pest control, as well as measures to implement to prevent future problems.

Topics to learn:

  • Audit failure levels
  • What to do if you fail on audit
  • How to recover from an audit fail
  • Preventing future issues and ensuring audit success
