To ensure our quality systems and regulatory compliance, internal audit systems should be supplemented by external audits from three different sources: AIB, which can perform yearly audits utilizing the appropriate consolidated standard for the site; each site’s ISO registrar, which can perform annual surveillance audits; and customer audits, which provide additional input. Adhering to the well-organized effort detailed here can improve companies’ compliance position and enhance the growth of flavor and fragrance product lines.
