CAIXETA, Leonardo Gonçalves Teodoro; LOPES, Marcos Aurélio  and  BRUHN, Fábio Raphael Pascoti. Non-compliances found in the official audits of SISBOV held in Minas Gerais. Arq. Inst. Biol. [online]. 2014, vol.81, n.4, pp.372-376. ISSN 1808-1657.

The objective of this research was survey the non-compliances found during the official audits of the Brazilian Beef and Buffalo Identification and certification System (SISBOV) in Minas Gerais, Brazil, between 2009 and 2010. In the qualitative research, data concerning the main non-compliances found in these reports were collected, which led to the suspension or cancellation of the SISBOV approved rural enterprise certification (ERAS). In 2009, 484 audits were conducted, 141 being considered unsuitable for being included in the in Traces list. In 2010, 310 ERAS audits were performed and 55 of them had a negative result. The data set analysed was obtained from a sample of 64 non-compliance reports in the year 2009 and 27 non-compliance reports in 2010. In 2009 there were found 168 non-compliances, the main ones being: mistakes in filling in the Identification Spreadsheets and the Entrance Reports; and incorrect herd checking. In 2010, 58 noncompliances were found, the main ones being: mistakes in filling in the Identification Spreadsheets, Entrance and Exit Reports. It is concluded that the main non-compliances found are due to the incorrect filling of documents. Such mistakes can be avoided, provided that certifying entities and breeders pay more attention and give more importance to filing documents.
