ISO 9001 internal audit
As soon as your business has implemented it’s ISO 9001 Quality Management System it is mandatory to test all parts of the system as ISO 9001 takes place in each step of the value chain.
An ISO 9001 internal audit is a very useful tool to test all elements of the quality system and determine whether everything is correct. Just to be clear an internal audit does not replace an external audit conducted by a third party. An internal audit is carried out by the company.
An external audit is carried out by a Certification Body who awards the ISO 9001 certificate.
