AUDIT AND CERTIFICATION PROCESS

The duration of a BeVeg audit is usually a day on field. (8-9 hours/day). The audit duration depending on;

  • Number of employees
  • Size of the manufacturing facility including on site storage facilities

Number of HACCP studies included in BeVeg-approved products and ingredients under audit (A HACCP study corresponds to a product family with similar hazard and similar production technology in terms of time spent in the field)

If there is only vegan product production in the field, this will shorten the required audit times, however an example, the purchase record, the purchase control policy and the final field assessment processed on the field still need to be verified to the end of the vegan claim.
