What happens if a sampling plan IS determined to be necessary?
The operation can follow the guidance in Appendix X as well as utilize the many resources listed as a source of help to improve the operation’s sanitation practices. Remember, an EMP is used to assess the effectiveness of sanitation practices. During the audit, the auditor will review the sampling plan developed and any applicable results. If the results had indicated that further action was required, those will also be evaluated along with the relevant documentation.
