Solutions by discipline:
Auditing is the on-site verification, by examination or inspection, of an organization, management system, or process against a specified standard. Organizations conduct audits to measure compliance, gauge the effectiveness of their processes, and enable continuous improvement.
The types of standards against which an organization might be audited are as numerous as the various industries in which management systems are required or recommended. In many cases an organization might adhere to several different standards and therefore require multiple points of audit.
Some examples of international standards are:
ISO 9001 Quality Management System
ISO 14001 Environmental Management System
ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety, which is planned to succeed the OHSAS 18001 standard currently in use
AS9100 Quality Management System – Requirements for Aviation, Space and Defense Organizations
ISO 12207 Systems and Software Engineering –Software Lifecycle Processes
ISO 13485 Medical devices — Quality management systems — Requirements for regulatory purposes
ISO 22000 Requirements for Food Safety Management Systems
No matter the guiding standards used, organizations must routinely prove compliance in order to operate within regulations, achieve operating efficiency, and maintain client/vendor relationships.
