An internal audit is crucial in assuring your food safety and quality management system is working properly. Global Food Safety Initiative-recognized certification schemes such as SQF, BRC, IFS or FSSC 22000 require that internal audits are conducted at a minimum annually. An ineffective internal audit may have severe consequences for your business.

Therefore, it is important that employees are adequately trained in how to properly audit your systems. GFSI certification may not be the only reason why your organization should conduct an internal audit. Regulations such as FSMA may also trigger internal audits as part of the verification activities.
