Your FREE Checklist
To achieve its main objective, ISO 9001 requires designers, manufacturers, service industries as well as end users to possess a fully auditable Quality Management System consisting of Quality Policies, Quality Processes, Quality Procedures and Work Instructions. It is this Quality Management System that will provide the auditable proof that the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 have been and still are being met.
Since the introduction of ISO 9001:2015 (Clause 9.2.1 ‘Internal audit’) it has now become mandatory that:
‘The organisation shall conduct internal audits at planned intervals to provide information on whether the Quality Management System:
the organisation’s own requirements for its Quality Management System;
the requirements of this international standard;
is effectively implemented and maintained’.
However, certain sections of the industry see compliance auditing as no longer being ‘fashionable’ and performance auditing is the only way forward and there is now a need for organisation’s to conduct regular internal audits and that is why ISO 9001:2015 now contains:
a complete checklist against the requirements of ISO 9001:2015;
additional (general purpose) check sheets;
example stage audit check; and
a selection of audit forms
