GMP compliance is viewed today as an essential baseline of food safety for food packers, processors manufacturers, and greenhouses. GMP audits are increasingly required by retailers as proof that you take food safety seriously. Independent GMP verification confirms your operation's food safety practices and processes, and helps put you on the path to GFSI level Certification or reinforce your existing food safety program.

Eligible Companies

GMP audits are relevant to any food processing or packing operation in which food is handled:

  • Packhouses and Repackers
  • Greenhouses
  • Manufacturing

GDP audits are relevant for Cold or Dry Storage and Distribution.

We can audit the vendors in your supply chain directly, and can also verify audits conducted by other third-parties.

Pre-Assessment

SCS can walk you through a pre-assessment process. Pre-assessment is a non-scored mock audit designed to assess the level of your preparedness for a certification audit. Ask about combining a pre-assessment with your initial audit for greater efficiency.

Audit Coverage

In the GMP audit, we verify your Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) as well as Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs), including management commitment, mock recall, traceability, employee practices, training and education, sanitary facilities, water quality, building construction and design, pest control, cleaning and sanitation, equipment design and maintenance, storage, etc.

SCS can also perform GMP audits to the United Fresh Harmonized Audit Standard, including specialized audits such as Tomato Metrics.

For companies operating under HACCP plans, SCS includes a HACCP Food Safety Management plan audit within our GMP audits. You can further manage your risk by requesting a food security audit.
