Home / Auditing


An audit is a systematic evaluation of objective data to determine the level of fulfillment of some predetermined criteria. We conduct assessments (audits) of existing Quality Management Systems to determine compliance or degree of compliance with the appropriate ISO 9000 based standard. Examples would be ISO 9001, AS9100, TS16949, TL9000, API-Q1, ISO 13485, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, or other standard of the client’s choice. This assessment will be led or performed by fully trained Assessors or Certified Quality Auditors. The following services are offered:

  • Gap Analysis: This is performed on a varying level of comprehensiveness, starting with the lowest level, which would be a survey, to a high level of detail to find minute nonconformities. A gap analysis or Gap Audit is typically conducted as first step to designing a system.
  • Transition Audit: This is an audit that is performed prior to upgrading an ISO 9001:2008 system to the new ISO 9001:2015 standard.
  • Pre-assessment Audit: this is an audit that typically is performed prior to a registration audit, which is the audit based upon which a certificate is awarded by a registrar.
  • Supplier Evaluation: These are audits that a client would ask us to do on their behalf for the purpose of evaluating potential suppliers.
  • Subcontract Third Party Quality Systems Assessment: These are audits typically requested by registrars to evaluate a company that is seeking certification.
  • Perform your Internal Audits: This is perhaps the most popular. This is where a client would engage us to do audits on their behalf on themselves. Most large companies train a team of auditors that spend a good portion of their time for auditing. Smaller companies, however, are better served by hiring professional auditors on a part time basis for ISO Internal Audit or QMS Audit. The job gets done better.

Our Quality Management software QISS has a dedicated module for auditing where specific data regarding audits performed within or by your company is stored. Audit dates, agendas and schedules are prepared in the module and results are kept in the system for review by management or customers. Dates to remember such as new audit dates, performance or corrective action due dates are available that keep a user up to date and never late with work that is on a schedule or timetable.

Besides the Audit module, our QISS software has a full suite of integrated modules that help you run a system scalable in complexity and size from a rudimentary single location with a handful of personnel to multi-national organizations with many locations organized in regions, etc, and with thousands of people.
