ISO 9001:2000, The Process Approach & Surveillance Audit Requirements
Friday, 07 March 2014
We all know that at a Registration and/or a Re-Assessment Audit, auditors are required to review all elements of a Quality Management System as defined by the customer's processes and the ISO 9001:2000 Standard, but what truly needs to be audited during a surveillance audit? There is obviously less time involved, so a comprehensive look at the whole system is not possible. However, as a Registrar, we want to give you a value-added audit that assists you with improving your business!
So, what really has to be audited at each surveillance?
The following areas MUST BE covered Annually:
- Management Review (5.6, 8.2.1, 8.2.3, 8.4, 8.5.1)
- Improvement Process (8.5.1, 8.2.3)
- Internal Audit (8.2.2, 8.2.3)
- Corrective Action (8.5.2, 8.2.3)
- Preventive Action (8.5.3, 8.2.3)
ASR's goal is to provide the customer with a comprehensive audit whether it is a Registration, Re-Assessment or Surveillance Audit. We will do that by auditing those items that are required and then reviewing those parts of your system where we can truly add value and assist you with improvement of your business!
