  Internal Auditing (FRESH LOOK)
  Are you struggling with the annual internal system audits?
Once you have a management system established, the internal auditing of that management system is very important and is crucial to the continual improvement process of any system. Management system audits should be;
  • Planned and scheduled at regular intervals
  • Completed by an auditor, impartial to the process being audited.
By not completing internal audits as required by any standard, it will create problems;
  • Internally - not checking verification of your procedures
  • For your external assessment - failing to complete audits will result in un-wanted non-conformances.

How can ZBCS help you?

We can offer you an internal audit service where we will manage the system on your behalf; ensuring that the internal audits are completed regularly, management reviews are held at least annually, any non-conformances raised are rectified and acting as your management representative during the external assessment process.

We have a variety of skilled and experienced auditors that can audit your management system for you who are independent and impartial to the audit process, as required by any standard.
These audits can either be based on your own existing audit timetable proving it is adequate and encompasses all the requirements or we can establish a new audit timetable for you.
We will then complete internal audits as per the timetable, and schedule these visits out over an annual period to ensure all elements of the system are considered and completed prior to your external annual assessment., for which we will also attend.

If necessary we will raise any non conformances ; advising where necessary on corrective actions to rectify these and ensure these actions are completed.
  What are the benefits of having an external internal auditor?
  • The auditor is impartial to the audit process as required by any management standard.
  • Auditor experience - we audit a variety of businesses and industries and we may have seen something that could help improve your processes.
  • Auditor Knowledge - E.g. particularly important in health and safety, and / or environmental management systems.
  • Your audits will be planned and scheduled, thus they will be completed and not forgotten.
  • “A Fresh look” - we are more likely to spot any errors than an internal auditor who works in the area or within the organisation.
  • External assessments will run much more smoothly - releasing valuable time for your employees to carry on with their normal day to day activities
