With a CV as long as your arm Peter and Marc found plenty of fertile ground to cover on Marc's experience of auditing, not only on both sides of the table but both sides of the Atlantic. Marc shares how his background in law helped his auditing, how crucial frameworks can be when investigating GMP environments, how being proactive auditee can work to your benefit and just how difficult it can be navigating an audit where English isn't necessarily the first language.
