ISO and HACCP Audit

Yesterday, my plant was internally audited. The auditors checked our International Organization for Standard (ISO) and Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) documents thoroughly. Few of the GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) documents were reviewed as well. It took the auditors 4 hours to go through some of the documents. Besides interviewing me, the auditors interviewed the plant supervisors as well. By having an internal audit like this, we are continuously improving our documentation system. At the closing meeting, we were awarded 3 Non-conformance (NC), for not complying with the ISO and HACCP standard. I'll take appropriate corrective action towards the NC's charged to us.

Tomorrow, I'm going to be an internal auditor to audit two departments in my work place. One must be a trained auditor to carry out an audit. For that, today, I have made early preparation by reading that department's ISO documents. It's quite a new field to me, but at least I'm learning something non-technical from other department's operation and documentation.

An important thing to take note is, whenever, we charge a Non-conformance (NC), we must include a prove and associate the non-compliance with the right clause from the ISO or HACCP standard.
