AMS Audit and Accreditation Programs  
AMS provides audit and accreditation programs based on International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Standards and/or Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) Principles and Guidelines. These programs provide producers and suppliers of agricultural products the opportunity to assure customers of their ability to provide consistent quality products or services. AMS verifies their documented programs through independent, third-party audits. AMS audit and accreditation programs are voluntary and paid through hourly user-fees.

 
AMS is recognized nationally and internationally as a competent and reliable provider of audit and accreditation services. AMS utilizes the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 19011:2002 guidelines for quality and/or environmental management systems auditing as the format to evaluate program documentation, to ensure consistent auditing practices, and to promote international recognition of audit results.
