Audits verify that the procedures identified in the Facility SANC Manual are being followed. Internal audits will be conducted by the facility and external audits will be conducted jointly by the facility and the State Certifying Authority. These audits help to verify that the procedures are being done as documented in the Facility SANC Manual and that the Pest Management Plan is working.
Use your Facility SANC Manual to build the internal and external audit forms. An early SANC Pilot Nursery has provided their audit form that can be used for guidance.
Review the Non-compliance Guidelines document (pdf). It suggests examples of non-compliance issues that would be classified as Minor, Major, or Critical.
Use the SANC Corrective Action Request Form (doc) as a template for when a corrective action is needed.
