Third party auditing to the Spotless standard is conducted every six months.
The Standard and the audit regime ensures every supplier provides clean and safe foods for handling and consumption. It is the suppliers’ responsibility to provide Spotless with a new audit certificate every six months confirming compliance to the Standard.
For food suppliers we have developed a food quality program that meets the highest industry standards. We are the only service provider in the industry that uses third party auditors to audit suppliers to these standards.
Our quality assurance requirements also vigorously ensure that suppliers acknowledge their OH&S and insurance obligations
1st & 2nd Party Audits
In addition to 3rd party certification, Sci Qual International can offer 1st & 2nd party audits.
1st Party Audits
As long as you are not certified by Sci Qual International we can conduct internal audits of your management system to assist you in meeting your compliance requirements under a range of standards. This offers the advantage of an experienced auditor confirming that your internal procedures are being followed and that you are applying a continuous improvement and risk based approach.
Note: If you are certified by Sci Qual International we cannot conduct your internal audits as this would represent a conflict of interest under our JAS-ANZ accreditation.
2nd Party Audits
Sci Qual International can conduct second party audits to assess the performance of your suppliers or compliance with contract requirements etc. We have auditors experienced in QMS, EMS, OHS and Food safety certification.
