FACTA’s traceability audit is an evaluation of the company’s traceability protocols and procedures and how those are carried out on-site.

This audit includes an objective, science-based assessment of the program and analyses the current program for gaps and non-compliance.  FACTA can review the current program and make suggestions to help the company implement the highest-level traceability program based on science and thorough documentation.


FACTA post-audit processes include:

  • The internal audit assessment
  • Report generated from FACTA (objective information, relevant industry data, professional judgment)
  • Quality control
  • Peer review
  • Final outcome letter
