Audits and Compliance are often not taken seriously until a facility is inspected or investigated and the license is in jeopardy. Non-compliance can result in large fines and/or loss of licenses. There are well over 200 compliance points for each license type.
It is important to conduct external audits of compliance on at least a quarterly basis, along with full internal audits and internal spot checks for inventory and cash. There should also be full audits directly after new regulation has passed, before implementation is required.
