ISO standards require internal audits to be conducted at planned intervals to ensure the quality management system conforms to your organisation’s own requirements, the requirements of the Standard, and to ensure the management system is effectively implemented and maintained.
Your business should obtain information through internal audits about the performance and effectiveness of the management system from an impartial view, to ensure that planned arrangements have been completed.
Internal audits are important: there is no denying it.
Whilst you can get an independent person in to carry out your company’s internal audit, many businesses are tempted to do them in house – if they have a member of staff with the appropriate experience, of course.
However, the main role of an internal audit is to provide your company with independent assurance that your risk management, governance and all internal control processes are operating in an effective manner and instructing iZi-SHEQ Consultants to assist with this provision will ensure that all the requirements are met.
iZi-SHEQ Consultants will provide a full internal audit report.
A PESTLE analysis will help us to identify internal and external issues which may affect your company either positively or negatively.
Considering internal and external issues is a requirement of ISO Standards and a PESTLE analysis includes considering factors such as political, economical, social, technological and legal. We will also consider markets factors, performance of the company and any resources issues.
ISO standards require top management conduct management review meetings to review the performance and effectiveness of a management system to ensure it remains suitable and to identify any areas for improvement.
A management review meeting is a structured meeting that must take place at least annually, instructing iZi-SHEQ Consultants to assist with this provision ensures that all the requirements of the standard are covered.
iZi-SHEQ will chair your management review meeting and record all the necessary minutes. A full report will be provided documenting all required outputs and highlighting actions required for continual improvement.
