FSMA audits are about the documentation of the facility. The requirements dictate that data from different departments must be gathered in one place. Maintaining this information requires a concentrated effort and plan. A plant must define protocols: a “Review Protocol” to review risk points and adjust, a “Self-Audit Protocol” to confirm consistent food safety, and a “GMP Protocol” to confirm operation practices. The goal is to never let an auditor find something you aren’t already correcting.
