The operation is responsible for implementing corrective actions to the best of their ability, within the timeframe required by the program or indicated by their customer if the customer has a shorter timeframe [e.g., immediately (one week), one month, etc.]. Under program rules, participants are given a maximum of 60 days from receipt of the audit report or the end of the season (whichever is sooner) to complete corrective actions. CanadaGAP considers ‘end of the season’ as the time when the in-scope activities for the food safety program are no longer happening (e.g., the operation is no longer in production, packing, etc.). ‘End of season’ is not meant to be the end of the calendar season. Those who have not implemented corrective actions by the deadline will either not be certified, or will have certification withdrawn, and will need another audit.
