Many of you have already begun to prepare for your ISO Transition Audit. Some have already had an ISO Transition Audit performed. Although their Quality System has been updated to the new requirements, some companies are still failing their audits. This may come as a surprise.
So what is the number one problem being found?
The KEY finding is LACK OF EVIDENCE.
This occurs because there is not enough TIME factored in between implementing and the actual audit.
Don’t wait until last minute. You NEED results for evidence. Three months is strictly a MINIMUM suggestion of time for evidence that the system works. It is definitely better to have more. Many will FAIL their audit without at least the minimum.
Things to consider when preparing for your ISO Transition Audit:
- Do an Internal Audit of the entire Quality System to validate changes.
- Complete one full Management Review to the 2015 requirements.
- You will need a minimum of three months evidence gathered prior to your ISO Transition Audit for an Auditor to verify.
Prior to your actual ISO Transition Audit, DAC Audit Services has options to help you prepare. It would be wise to have a System Analysis and/or Readiness Audit performed. If you are unsure how prepared you are for your ISO Transition Audit you would benefit to have a System Analysis first. The System Analysis helps to identify discrepancies between the ISO 2015 requirements and your current business processes. It can help identify what is missing in the company’s processes. You may have updated all the requirements and not have evidence of results in all process measurements. If you are ready to have your actual ISO Transition Audit, it would be a good idea to have Readiness Audit performed. This will ensure that you do not fail your ISO Transition Audit.
