CTF customers gain 24 hours a day, seven days a week on-line access to a member’s audit history, from pre-plant assessments, audits results to corrective actions. If there’s a compliance issue, we email our customers with the report.
Standard operating procedures and supporting documents are uploaded to our Azzule developed on-line database for auditors to review before an inspection. Audits of all ranches are required within two weeks from the first day of harvest. Within 24 hours of the audit, results are uploaded to the on-line database for CDFA and USDA supervisors, CTF, and the CTF member to review. Corrective actions, if required, are issued and must be implemented within 3 or 5 days, depending upon the severity of the violation. Re-audits, if required, are conducted within hours. Only then does a member receive certification by USDA of meeting the audit requirements and the CTF compliance standards.
As a customer, you’re able to monitor the entire auditing process on-line, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Audits can be automatically transferred to your company’s automated auditing system.
