Every auditor receives extensive classroom and practical experience before conducting an audit. Staff training is updated every year to maintain the highest quality of professionalism.

GMP Inspections

Scoring well on an AIB GMP Inspection shows that a supplier is committed to doing all they can to provide clean, safe products and is a source of pride that provides a competitive advantage. Sharing audit inspection scores with potential customers is a way to demonstrate dedication to providing safe, superior products.

Our professional audit staff uses AIB’s 11 Consolidated Standards for Inspection that set out the requirements to establish a superior food safety program to guide their inspections and train your employees.

Comprehensive GMP Inspections evaluate the adequacy of:

* Operational Methods and Personnel Practices
* Maintenance for Food Safety
* Cleaning Practices
* Integrated Pest Management
* Adequacy of Prerequisite and Food Safety Programs

Consolidated Standards for Inspection

In use since 1956, the Consolidated Standards are the foundation of the world-renown AIB International inspection. Written with multiple audiences in mind, the Standards serve two key goals:

1. To provide a series of statements that represent key requirements that a food-processing or handling facility must meet in order to keep the products in a facility wholesome and safe.
2. To educate the users of the Standards on the meaning of the individual Standards, the inspection process, and how to have a successful inspection.
