AFSAP members enjoy unified representation across a wide range of topics currently affecting the food safety auditing community. In the era of FSMA compliance, AFSAP’s Regulatory Affairs representatives are working tirelessly to:
- Improve public perception of the professional food safety auditor
- Educate regulatory agencies and other stakeholders on the challenges facing the auditor,
- Develop practical solutions that address stakeholder concerns and support the auditor’s role
Elevate the food safety auditor role by creating a professional career track:
- A realistic path for entry level auditors,
- Continuous professional development –
- 8 hours per year included with each membership
Many stakeholders have provided input on what an auditor needs to do or what an auditor needs to know. Rarely has the auditor community had the opportunity to provide input on these issues or address various shortcomings in the current system of food safety auditor development and auditing practices.
No one understands the daily challenges facing an auditor better than the actual auditor, and finally there is a platform for voicing these concerns. Join a committee working on a topic you are passionate about, or suggest one if you think we’re missing a topic. We know we have not covered everything, and look for your input to make AFSAP the organization you need.
AFSAP’s strength is, and always will be, the combined efforts of its members.
