Internal Audit

TRAINING OBJECTIVES AND OUTLINE

ISO 19011 defines an audit as a systematic, independent and documented process for obtaining audit evidence and evaluating it objectively to determine the extent to which the audit criteria are fulfilled. Audits are viewed as one of the major inputs into management review. It has the advantages of supporting continual improvement when the outcome is followed through in terms of corrective actions. Taking auditing seriously would bring your establishment several steps closer to eliminating the nonconformity that has the potential to cripple your business.
