Although data were being collected to note such instances, they were not being analyzed by the plant or company headquarters to detect trends over time. Had such analyses been conducted, the re-emergence of Listeria on a regular basis would have become obvious much sooner. </p></li><li><p>Auditor tactics </p><p>One of the most effective ways to gather objective evidence for many audit aspects is to create an audit trail. This strategy demonstrates a high level of control of the audit process and shows how all parts of the FSMS are interconnected. </p><p>Audit trail </p></li><li><p>It is often beneficial to start the audit trail from the end of the process and proceed up the process flow. </p></li></ul>
