Confidence in Compliance

Primus Standard Audits are supported by PrimusLabs’ 30 years of industry experience and powered by Azzule Systems smart, integrated technology. The scope of Primus Standard Audits is focused on the food safety of agricultural sector products (including horticultural, grains, and pulses) designated for human consumption. Primus Standard Audits establish a series of requirements for managing the production, handling, processing, and storing operations, which should be considered for consumers’ safety.

 

Effective December 1, 2020, Primus Standard Audits V20.06 will be available for use, though the earlier version of Primus Standard Audits GAP V7.04 and GMP V14.09 will also be available during a transition period. After July 1, 2021, only V20.06 can be used.

This series of checklists is updated regularly to follow government regulations and buyer expectations. Primus Standard Audits version 20.06 incorporate FDA FSMA requirements, along with updates for Good Agricultural Practices and Good Manufacturing Practices. The Produce Safety Rule is included within the Primus Standard Audits templates for Farm, Indoor Agriculture, Harvest Crew, and Facility for those operations that must meet those rule requirements. For facility operations, an updated, voluntary addendum covers FDA FSMA’s Preventive Controls for Human Food Rule.

 

V20.06 also offers the option of remote auditing as an alternative to on-site inspections. As a widely accepted food safety audit standard, Primus Standard Audits continue to work with buyers and retailers to offer the industry affordable 3rd party audit options and 2nd party audit tools.
