As part of a global initiative, a FMCG company were looking for all their companies to have an accreditation in line with their C-TPAT. I was responsible to Project Manage the application in UK and helped co-ordinate the application in Europe. Both the accreditations were complete, audited and passed within four months. With the UK being the most difficult as it has 24 manufacturing sites. I had to manage and co-ordinate all 9 audits with the factories, staff and HMRC which was a great challenge as the factories are distributed far and wide around the UK.
