  • Auditor Competence Scheme Committee Progress | Dec 2014

    The operational phase of the GFSI Auditor Competence project is now underway. Thanks to the leadership and generosity of many of the GFSI Board member companies, a specialised testing company has been contracted to assist with the development of the knowledge examination, and the first item development workshop will be held in Denver, Co, in early December. Many GFSI stakeholders volunteered to assist in this process as Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) and fifteen were selected for the initial phase – the development of the knowledge examination for post farm-gate manufacturing sectors (ie GFSI sectors C, D, E, and L). Other volunteer SMEs will be called on to assist with later phases of the examination development.
