ISO 9000 & AUDITS WORLD CONFERENCE
Developing a Risk Based Internal Audit Plan
Presenter: Laura Halleck, Sr. QMS Consultant, Quality Support Group, Westford, NH, USA
Keywords: Audit, Risk, Priorities
ISO 9001:2105 requires us to apply the concept of Risk Based Thinking to setting priorities for the organization, including our internal audit approach. This will allow the organization to focus more time and resources in the areas of higher risk, thereby improving the likelihood of detection of system nonconformances that could have a significant impact on the business. This presentation provides specific tools to identify, quantify, and prioritize risks to the organization that will allow the Audit Manager to develop an appropriate and effective audit program that will support the needs of the business, while minimizing non-value added auditing activities.
