IFST Food Safety Group Webinar: Remote Auditing Sept 2020


Organised by Food Safety Group

The pandemic brought a halt to audits of manufacturing sites, distribution centres and farms. After some initial confusion, then came acceptance of remote auditing, firstly as a stop-gap measure, and recognition that remote access/viewing can offer substantial opportunities.  We will hear from two speakers involved with such remote auditing and their experiences in practice.

What you will learn about: Remote auditing from auditor point of view, additional benefits of such remote access.

Target Audience: Food professionals, including food safety, engineering and R&D.
