ISO 9000 & AUDITS WORLD CONFERENCE ABSTRACT
WS3- Internal Auditing of ISO 9001:2015 - How to Audit a Process-Based QMS
This workshop will cover the requirements for internal auditing as found in ISO 9001:2015, clause 9.2, Internal audit.
Internal quality audits are used to evaluate the adequacy of processes used to implement the quality management system, to evaluate if quality management system requirements are being met, and determine the effectiveness of system implementation. Audits can also be used to address organizational efficiency by identifying opportunities for improvement and best practices that can be deployed in other areas of an organization. These latter aspects are of increasing importance as auditors need to learn how to follow the value-stream flow to find opportunities for significant improvement in organizational performance as well as product and service quality.
The workshop will provide attendees with a detailed understanding of what is needed to establish a viable audit program and to conduct effective audits. Learning objectives for the workshop include understanding how to:
Design and implement an effective audit program
Perform internal audits of a QMS based on the process approach and ISO 9001:2015 requirements
