IFS has now launched the Guidance for the new GMP Check which can be downloaded in several languages via our website. Uploading the GMP Check will be possible as of end of May. The GMP Check is a voluntary one day, unannounced check by an IFS Auditor on-site. The GMP Check is a supportive and time effective tool for verifying good manufacturing practices on-site once Covid-19 related restrictions are lifted whilst pressure on auditor capacities rises. Having a GMP Check successfully performed on-site will not only show compliance with hygiene and food/product safety requirements to retailers and wholesalers, but reinforces trust in business relationships during these extraordinary times. Please note that the GMP Check is a stand-alone solution, not accredited and has been specifically developed for the Covid-19 crisis only.
