The International Standards Organisation (ISO) is the global leader in setting, maintaining and validating industry-based quality standards. The ISO standards developed quality management systems (QMS) that have become the accepted benchmark for deliverance of quality products and services.
Internal Auditors have the responsibility of carrying out these audits, assessing remedial actions and ensuring the effectiveness of all core business processes. Our CQI_IRCA approved 2 day Internal Auditor Training will give your auditors, particularly those who audit internally against any standard, (for example ISO 9001, ISO 13485 and cGMP, ISO 2200) the skills and knowledge to do so from a process and risk based perspective.
ISO 9001:2015—Quality Management Systems this standard promotes the adoption of a process-based approach to managing a Quality Management System solely focused on enhancing customer satisfaction by meeting customer expectations.
The ISO standards require organisations to determine the effectiveness of their quality management systems on an annual basis through external audits, followed by an ISO Certified Body led re-certification audit every 3 years, to ensure compliance to ISO 9001 requirements. The annual external audit is hugely important to organisations which makes it critical to develop an internal audit team to ensure the organisation is conforming to the requirements of the standard.
ISO standards also require organisations to conduct their own Internal audits with independent and competent auditors taking a Process and Risk Based approach. It is therefore essential that Internal Auditors are given the Education, Training, Knowledge, and Skills to conduct these audits effectively.
Lead Auditors have similar responsibilities, usually for both internal and supplier audites, but with a greater emphasis on leading audits. Our CQI_IRCA approved 5-day Lead Auditor training is designed with the specific objective of equipping participants with best-in-class audit practice to master the audit skills, managing and leading the entire ISO 9001 audit process from audit planning, resource allocation, team management and to final closing meeting where the audit results are presented to management. The Lead Auditor role is key to the efficient and effective audit process, with ultimate responsibility for the audit.
Lead Auditors should be fully versed and understand the ISO 9001 Quality Standards to thoroughly manage the Quality Management Systems audit, and to be able to liaise appropriately with external bodies or regulatory auditors/inspectors in an effective manner while also represent the organisation externally when auditing suppliers.
