are rarely thorough enough and often don't ask management the
tough questions. A professional internal auditor will ensure
that these questions are answered and provide a complete, honest
assessment of the management system's effectiveness.
Your registrar's auditor
can't recommend changes to your management system. A seasoned professional
can suggest changes and offer solutions.
A professional internal auditor
can be a resource for interpretations of the standards and better
prepare the organization for customer and third party certification
ISO 9001-based standards require
additional audit skills to properly evaluate a management
system's effectiveness that many existing internal auditors
don't possess. By utilizing an expert, the internal audit program
will be stronger.
Free yourself from having to
constantly train internal auditors who may lack the time and/or
tenacity to identify critical deficiencies. Save training resources,
time and cost.
Audits are performed in a condensed
timeframe to minimize distractions yet maximize impact on improvement
efforts. Keep audits on a crisp, manageable schedule.
Free yourself from paperwork.
A comprehensive and professionally prepared internal audit report
identifies both nonconformances and opportunities for improvement,
referencing specific requirements of the standards.
