Quality management systems (QMS) such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 require that internal audits be scheduled at planned intervals – but your company must establish the frequency which is right for you.

Virtual or remote audits are an increasingly common way to overcome barriers – such as a global pandemic – that prevent in-person audits. This session explores how manufacturers have successfully adapted and pivoted to make virtual auditing work for them.

Topics covered in this webinar include:

  • Do’s and dont’s in virtual auditing
  • Better preparing for virtual auditing
  • Possible IMEC Internal Auditing opportunities
  • Gap Analysis performed by IMEC as companies emerge from pandemic

QMS audits are used for a variety of reasons:

  • Assessing compliance with standards, regulations, and guidances
  • Adherence to requirements and specifications
  • Evaluating process and system performance
  • Evaluating the adequacy and effectiveness of the quality management system
  • Ensuring conformance with contractual obligations
