IFS Position Paper
IFS is a pioneer in auditor management and qualification.
We firmly believe that solid auditor competence is the basis for the IFS standards' credibility and reliability. Since its inception in 2002, IFS takes responsibility to ensure the highest level of auditor performance. Our philosophy is that auditors performing IFS Assessments need excellent audit skills, technical knowledge, and social acuity. In addition, we expect IFS Auditors worldwide to assess companies in a consistent manner. It is why IFS manages the auditor qualification process, develops auditor training courses, monitors their performance, and conducts refresher training. In our newest IFS Position Paper, we explain what IFS Auditor Management is and how we ensure the integrity of the IFS Food Assessments.
