Hygiene audits for commerce and trade

Compliance with COVID-19 hygiene requirements

Comply with COVID-19 Hygiene Requirements

On the backdrop of COVID-19, the well-being and health of both your employees and your customers is of highest priority. Based on applicable hygiene and safety measures, TÜV SÜD offers a hygiene audit to help assess your compliance to the regulatory framework.

  • Assess the hygiene status of your business
  • Ensure compliance with applicable safety measures
  • Document your hygiene efforts

Irrespective of whether your business had to close for some weeks because of COVID-19, or has remained open throughout the pandemic crisis, compliance with all applicable hygiene and safety measures will be essential for companies of all sizes both now and in the time to come.

Measures such as shutdowns and social distancing have proven the importance of hygiene measures to reduce COVID-19 transmission. To further reduce and contain infection rates, the infections chains needs to be disrupted – both at work and at home.

The framework of COVID-19 safety measures include the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as regulations issued by national and local authorities. Based on the applicable regulations, TÜV SÜD has developed an extensive list of requirements for business in trade and commerce. These requirements are applied by our experienced and qualified auditors for the assessment of your company’s compliance.

Hygiene audit for commerce and trade – the process

 

The TÜV SÜD Hygiene Audit is valuable both for businesses in operation and businesses which are re-opening after a lockdown.

Scoping and on-site audit: Based on a list of criteria tailored to the needs of your company, our auditors will conduct an on-site audit to assess your company’s compliance with the relevant regulations.

Audit Report: After completion of the hygiene audit, we will send you a TÜV SÜD audit report with an overview of your company’s hygiene status.

Action list: You will also receive an action list with opportunities for improvement identified by our auditors, which you can use for independent improvement of your hygiene status.

Communicate: To conclude the hygiene audit, we issue a one-page summary audit report which you can use in your communication with employees and customers, and display in your salesrooms.
