This paper aims to implement an environmental audit model based on the specifications and recommendations of ISO 19011 and ISO 14001 in order to improve the Environmental Management System of a food company, located in the microregion of Natal-RN. Thus, the research was classified as exploratory and descriptive survey, with the model proposed in three phases: audit planning, application of the model and audit conclusions. From the results, it is necessary that the company has a greater focus on environmental aspects and impacts evaluation, because, although there is an assessment procedure, there was not evidenced the records containing the significant aspects. Hence, there is no reliability in the legal requirements and other restrictions survey, as well as the establishment of environmental objectives, goals and programs. However, the application of the model was allowed to do a practical and critique analysis of the actual situation of the company, thus enabling the assessment of strengths and opportunities for improvement in management.
