What is an internal audit?

In order to control, improve and monitor a quality management system, it is must be periodically evaluated. One way to do this, is with an internal audit. Many quality schemes require companies to preform regular internal audits. An internal audit is carried out to investigate whether work is being done in practice as it is laid down and agreed upon. In addition, screening the company offers opportunities to discover which aspects within the company can be improved. Unlike an external audit, you perform the internal audit yourself.


Wat does an internal auditor do?

During an internal audit, the auditor conducts interviews, assesses documents and reports on the audit. An audit plan must be drawn up prior to the audit. In this internal audit training, techniques are taught to independently perform internal audits. You can use these techniques within your organisation, but also for external supplier assessments. The training is given by experienced consultants who have already performed internal audits at numerous companies. You will learn from experts how to conduct an internal audit.
