ISO 9001 Audit

The ISO 9001 audit is an essential part of becoming and staying ISO 9001 certified. It will help you:

  • Ensure your Quality Management System complies with the ISO 9001 standard
  • Identify and address any issues with your Quality Management System
  • Identify potential improvements to your system
  • Ensure your organisation takes appropriate action to meet its quality objectives.

The ISO 9001 audit process

An ISO 9001 audit is a systematic, independent, objective and documented process for gathering facts. ISO 9001 auditors use the ISO 9001 internal audit checklist to record and evaluate evidence on the extent to which a company is complying with the standard. In other words, they will check that your company is following the best practice policies and processes for effective quality management.

Driving continual improvement is a key part of ISO 9001. That’s why the standard recommends you carry out regular internal and external audits. These will help you identify areas for improvement and ensure you have best practice processes in place.

ISO 9001 internal audits

Internal audits should be formal, impartial, objective, and organised in accordance with your internal audit procedures. They should inspect your company’s quality management system and check that your policies and procedures comply with your quality manual and the standard’s requirements.

By looking at how things are done and comparing them with how they should be done, you can identify areas for improvement. You should record these observations and review the audit results at regular management review meetings, which should occur between one and four times a year.

ISO 9001 external audits

Our consultants are experienced at auditing companies across many sectors. They can use these auditing skills to help you check that your suppliers have the right processes in place to fulfil your needs. This can form a vital part of your due diligence procedures before awarding contracts.

Our auditors can perform either a standard ISO 9001 audit or an audit that meets your specific requirements. Please visit our third party auditing page for more information.
