Auditing Management Systems Workshop

Event CancelledThis workshop is designed for auditors-in-training, auditors, audit supervisors and audit managers who have responsibility for auditing processes within management systems (e.g., quality, environmental, health and safety, and security management systems) in accordance with the requirements of ISO 19011, ISO 9001, AS9100, ISO/TS16949 and similar standards.

The workshop covers in detail (a) the considerations for establishing the overall auditing system (b) the differences in the processes for internal audit, supplier audit and third party audit, and (c) the process for performing an individual audit of any management system, in addition to quality, environmental, health and safety management systems – other than a financial management system.

Upon completion of this workshop, one will be able to:

  • Use audit terminology;
  • Understand the differences among internal, supplier and third party auditing;
  • Understand the factors to be considered in establishing an integrated auditing system;
  • Design, and, implement an integrated auditing system;
  • Plan the auditing activities for a given time period;
