Why Audit?

It is essential for an organization to understand its performance against its requirements; and whenever possible, to identify opportunities for improvement. To achieve these objectives, an organization must set out to conduct internal reviews of itself. These are called internal audits.

Internal audits are required in ISO 9001:2015 through the clause 9.2.

The intent of this process is to ensure the organization's knowledge of itself and how it is performing to its requirements. This process is charged to the internal auditor, whether developed from within or hired from outside.

Success in the auditing process is characterized by reliance on a number of principles. These principles make the audit experience an efficient and reliable tool in support of management policies and controls, providing information on which an organization can act to improve its performance.
