A qualified Lead Auditor, I perform certification audits for various Certification Bodies and I am annually certificated by IRCA.

The focus of any audit is to identify the degree of conformance and compliance to requirements:

  • how intent (what is supposed to happen) compares with actual what really happens
  • are specific requirements understood and met?
    • contractual
    • legal
    • product
    • industry
    • standards such as ISO 9001

The output of an audit may include:

  • Conformance and compliance – requirements are being met
  • Non-conformances – instances of requirements not being met
  • Observations – instances where processes need to be ‘tightened up’ to ensure conformance is maintained
  • Opportunities for improvement – opportunities to do things differently:
    • get better results
    • take less time
    • reduce stress
