ISO auditing means checking to make sure that what is being audited in the organization is consistent with what has been done.
During your ISO audit:
Verify that the quality management system complies with the ISO standard
– Check to ensure that the actions taken are in line with the quality goals of the organization or not?
– Check that any problems in the management system have been considered
ISO audit means:
A systematic and independent inspection to determine whether the organization’s quality system activities and related outcomes are in accordance with planned actions? And whether these agreements are being implemented effectively and are appropriate for achieving the goals
There are three main types of ISO auditing:
1- Internal audit: It is done within an organization to measure its strengths and weaknesses against its own methods or methods and / or against external standards set by (voluntarily) or applied to (mandatory) the organization.
Internal audit is an audit that is audited by the organization’s auditors but there is no benefit to the internal audit results.
2- Second person audit: An external audit performed by a customer or a contracting organization on behalf of the customer. Second-person audits are subject to contract rules, second-person audits are more likely than first-person audits because audit results can influence the customer’s purchasing decisions.
3- Third party audit: It is performed by an audit organization independent of the customer-supplier relationship and is free from any conflict of interest. The independence of the auditing organization is a key component of third-party auditing. Third party audits, if not conducted without compliance, will result in the registration and issuance of the relevant ISO certification.
