VBP+ Audit Pattern

VBP+ Audit Pattern

Repeating Every 8 Years

Audit Pattern

Note: A random audit may occur in any of the five self-declaration (S) years.

This random assessment pattern is similar to other agriculture commodity programs and the initial on-site validation audit is a requirement of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) food safety recognition program.

On Years 2 and 5 of the 8-year assessment cycle VBP+ Registered cattle operations must complete a Records Assessment. This assessment is a sampling of records for assessed to prove conformance to VBP+ program requirements. Provincial coordinators will inform VBP+ Registered producers when they are due for a Records Assessment.

On years 3, 4, 6, 7, and 8 of the assessment cycle, VBP+ Registered cattle operations need to complete a Self-Declaration and Checklist. These assessments are to be completed by someone on the cattle operation as a check on conformance with VBP+ requirements. Provincial coordinators will inform VBP+ Registered cattle operations when they are due for a Self-Declaration and Checklist. A window of two (2) months will be allowed to make sure it isn't due in a busy time period for the cattle operation.
