How We Work

One-time Compliance Audits

Don’t know where to start? Aren’t sure how compliant your already existing facility is? Allay Consulting can help! You choose what standards you want to be audited to and we can send a compliance expert to the facility to consult a one-time audit. This will give you lots of information and give you a base line of what your company might, or might not need improving on.  Pricing varies depending on standard (State Regulations, FDA, OSHA, Fire Code, cGMP, ISO 9001, ISO 22000) and travel cost.

Customizable Packages

After conducting a Baseline Assessment of a facility, our consultants will work with your company to build a package that fits your needs. While our packages always include a monthly site visit/ inspection, followed up by a comprehensive compliance report, any projects your company needs can be easily added either by reserving blocks of time or by going hourly.

Hourly Professional Services

If your company is unsure of scope, or simply has project or two that need attention, Allay can easily create an hourly plan. Ultimately, it is our job to make sure the product you create ends up in stores, not disposed of. While our hourly rate is usually the more expensive option, it can be beneficial in light of unforeseen or urgent situations, to ensure nothing falls through the cracks.
