New Digital GMP+ Examination 2020
Five times a year GMP+ International offers auditors the opportunity to do a GMP+ exam. The content and the method of the exam highly relates to the quality requirements that GMP+ International has for the global animal feed industry.
The purpose of good and reliable examination is to assure that auditors have sufficient knowledge of the GMP+ FC scheme requirements. To achieve this, GMP+ International has developed a new Examination Process which will help auditors in the examination process.
The new process will significantly reduce logistical planning and costs, improve the ease of executing the exam, offers transparency and has an updated validity period.

Knowledge levels (V2.0. Aug. 2019)
This describes the level of knowledge that GMP+ International expects from GMP+ auditors. An exam is developed on the basis of an overview with main and sub-knowledge levels. The main knowledge levels determine the limit to what the participant should know, but are too abstract for making exams. That is why they are particularized in sub-knowledge levels.
Note: the knowledge levels documentation can be adjusted if the pilot give cause for this.
