Due to COVID-19 travel and safety concerns, the FDA has suspended most foreign and domestic inspections. So what now? Audits assess compliance with standards and regulations, measure adherence to specifications, evaluate process and system performance, determine quality management system effectiveness, and so much more. In other words, audits are an essential tool for food and supplement companies to keep operations on track. And the FDA agrees by recently recognizing the need for alternatives, such as virtual inspections and sending documents electronically. Join Alicia Swanson, Global Manager for HACCP & HARPC at AIB International, for guidance on how to achieve success with virtual audits to identify and fix compliance deficiencies.

To address this issue, TraceGains asked Bryan Armentrout, CEO of the Food Leadership Group, to share what the FDA is looking for based on the latest enforcement actions, and how to keep your business compliant.
