Audit Procedure for ISO 22000 Certification in Saudi Arabia Through IAS
The certification process has 2 auditing stages, which include:
- Stage 1 Audit (Preliminary audit) – The first aspect of the Certification Audit is to determine whether a company is ready to proceed with Stage 2. During this time, our auditor will be gaining knowledge of the firm’s operations, controls, and financial position. Our auditors will go through and analyze all ISO 22000 documentation, as well as create an audit strategy based on their findings.
- Stage 2 Audit (Certification Audit) – In this stage, the company’s entire management system is examined and audited to ensure that it meets ISO 22000 standards. The length of time it takes a business to complete an audit in the second stage is determined by a variety of variables, including its size, the number of branches it has, and the services it provides.
