Expert services food

During an audit, your management system is checked against defined requirements. These include legal requirements and industry-specific aspects. In addition to the external certification audit, the IFS with its range of certification standards also provides for an internal audit. This includes a review of the entire catalogue of requirements by the organisation itself. Here it can be advantageous to have the company-specific issues assessed by a neutral person. We are happy to support you as an external, independent service provider in reviewing your quality management system and the associated processes. In doing so, we will show you potential for optimisation and make recommendations for improvement measures.

Our range of services:

  • Flexible planning and execution of audits by our competent, experienced auditors
  • Internal audits for the industry-specific IFS, BRC and FSSC 22000 standards or for DIN EN ISO 9001
  • Execution of internal audits that are mandatory according to standards
  • Neutral check of adherence to legal specifications
  • Independent check of your in-house management system for the conformity you require
  • Assessment of the effectiveness of your management system, also with the aid of company and hygiene inspections
  • Development and implementation of an individual audit program for your company
  • Announced or unannounced audits
  • Revelation of possible optimisation potentials, recommendations for improvement measures, implementation planning together with you

The utmost confidentiality regarding all audit results and our customers' know-how is a matter of course for us.
