ISO 9001 requires that you conduct periodic internal audits of your quality management system (QMS); one complete internal audit is required prior to certification. If done well, internal audits will not only determine the status of your QMS but drive business improvement and increase efficiencies.

By using the ISO 9001 Internal Audit Service, you are not only getting a complete audit that identifies each and every significant issue with your ISO 9001 system, but also coaching, support and best practices that address findings and improve your internal processes. And we'll guarantee that you'll pass your subsequent certification audit if you address all audit findings.

I see that you offer on-site and remote auditing. How does remote auditing work?
Our remote audits are generally as effective as traditional on-site audits. To achieve this, our auditor requires a company employee (usually the person responsible for ISO 9001) with a smart phone to serve as the auditor's virtual eyes, ears and mouth. We also leverage Microsoft Teams (or similar) with screen and file sharing features. If you want to find out in detail how we do it and how we ensure confidentiality and data security, read our short article on successful remote auditing.
Our lead auditors have several years experience in successfully conducting remote audits. If you are concerned about certain aspects, feel free to contact us.
What hours will the auditor be conducting audit activitieson-site?
We will be conducting audit activities during daytime business hours andvisit your facility during daytime business hours and stay for the duration of a normal workday (approximately 8-9 hours). If your company works in shifts or outside normal, daytime business hours, please contact us prior to purchasing this service.
Is it better to use this service or to have company staff conduct the audits internally?
Each approach has its own benefits.
Some companies set up a cross-functional audit team to encourage identification and adoption of best practices. Others find it beneficial to spread internal knowledge through internal audits. There are also companies that gain efficiencies by combining different audits, for example ISO 9001 and safety.
Outsourcing internal audits to our experienced, certified auditors brings other benefits. We guarantee to find every substantial issue – which is particularly important prior to the certification audit. Sharing our vast experience and providing improvement suggestions is another good reason to use our service. And then there are some companies that are simply too small or whose personnel is stretched too thin to train auditors and perform audits in-house.
These are just a few of the benefits of each approach but they may give you an idea on how to decide what's best in your particular situation.
Can I buy this service even if our ISO 9001 system isn't based on the 9001Simplified system?
Yes, absolutely. We will audit any quality management system, no matter which tools or services you used to implement it. Also, our Certification Guarantee applies to all ISO 9001 systems.
