Bord Bia Audits
In line with the new public health measures, Bord Bia on-farm audits recommence on 17th May 2021. Where possible, remote audits are preferable to minimise risk.
Level 1, 2 & 3
Remote or On-Farm Audit
During level 1, 2, and 3, farmers will have the option of completing either a remote audit or an on-farm audit – whichever they are most comfortable with.
Auditors have completed Covid-19 training and have been given comprehensive guidelines to observe when on-farm. Responsibility also lies with the farmer/auditee to follow public health guidelines in regards to social distancing, hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette.
Remote audits carry a maximum certification period of 18 months, on a par with on-farm audits.
Level 4 & 5
Remote audit only
If any individual county, counties, or if the whole country moves to level 4 or to level 5, then only remote audits will be conducted.
Any on farm audits scheduled prior to moving to level 4 & 5 will be rescheduled as remote audits with this producer informed.
