Following is a description of the different types of ISO audits:
A Gap Analysis takes place before setting up an ISO quality system. This type of audit identifies which requirements of the ISO standard are already in place and what is missing that is a requirement of the standard.
A Pre-Assessment audit is a complete audit of an ISO quality system to determine if the organization if ready for a certification audit by a registrar. QRC provides this type of audit and can provide advise and assistance on how to correct nonconformances.
Internal Auditing Services
QRC provides auditing services for firms that wish to outsource internal audits to outside audit specialists.
Supplier Survey Audits
A supplier survey audit is an audit of a supplier’s quality system to determine if the system complies with an identified ISO standard and customer-specified requirements.
Outsource ISO System Maintenance Program
An organization may want to outsource the maintenance of the ISO system. This includes conducting internal audits, managing corrective and preventive actions, preparation of information for the Management Review meeting, and consulting on the planning and monitoring of improvement objectives.
Reasons for Outsourcing Audits
Organizations often state the following reasons for outsourcing audits:
- ISO required internal audits are not on schedule
- Auditors cannot be taken from their work assignments
The organization has lost internal auditors due to promotion, lay-off, or the auditor has left the company
- Auditors are not independent of the processes to be audited
- Auditors do not know how to do process audits
New auditors are needed and there is not sufficient time to train auditors
An outside experienced auditor is more likely to conduct a value-added audit; i.e. find opportunities to improve system effectiveness
Outsourcing audits is more cost effective than training internal auditors
