Minor CARs now must be closed to get my certificate, why?
In line with other GFSI standards, to be allowed to be certified, a business must have no outstanding corrective actions. We have aligned the CAR closure to make Major and Minor CAR closure timeframes the same (28 days).
We have also made a change that any CAR’s not closed within 6 months deems the audit invalid and a new one will need to be completed.
** All corrective actions raised at an audit MUST be closed for your business to be Freshcare Certified**
