Audit documents

The documents that accompany the on-site visit are designed to make the audit process clear and straightforward for the local authority and the auditors.

Before an audit takes place the local authority will fill in a pre-visit questionnaire. Most audits focus on specific areas of the Feed and Food Law Enforcement Standard and audit protocols and checklists explain the purpose, parameters and process of the audit.

Examples of these documents can be found below. Protocols and checklists for each type of focused audit will be published as they become available.

These documents are updated regularly. Please send any comments or suggestions on how to improve them to Abimbola Adeyemi at
