Do you perform management system audits referencing Australian Pork Industry Quality (APIQ) requirements? Want to provide confidence to Australian Pork Ltd. (APL) that you have the appropriate competencies to ensure that all requirements are being met?

Exemplar Global’s Australian Pork Industry Quality Auditor certification program can give you the recognition you need to stand out from the crowd.

The Australian Pork Industry Quality (APIQ) Auditor Certification program has been developed as a scope under the National Food Safety Auditor (NFSA) certification program to provide confidence to APL and its customers that auditors undertaking management system audits referencing APIQ requirements have the appropriate competencies to ensure that all requirements are being met.

The NFSA and the APIQ scope have been developed to achieve conformity with ISO/IEC 17024:2012—the international standard for personnel certification.

This scope has been developed by Exemplar Global in conjunction with APL and representatives of the pork industry in Australia who formed a program committee to identify the specific requirements for certification in this scope of the NFSA program.

The APIQ program committee identified the criteria necessary to determine an applicant’s competency to perform audits using APIQ requirements. These criteria include the requirement for the applicant to demonstrate specific knowledge and skills in addition to the criteria already demonstrated through NFSA certification.

To apply for NFSA certification with the scope as an APIQ Auditor, applicants must provide one of the following:

  • Application as a National Food Safety Auditor (NFSA) at Level 2 low-risk auditor or higher including scope as an APIQ Auditor
  • Evidence of certification with Exemplar Global as an NFSA Level 2 auditor or higher provided with their application for scope as an APIQ Auditor.
