The Main Audit measures the effectiveness of the Quality Management System in managing your quality requirements, products, processes and services.
The audit is carried out alongside your own people, with results and findings openly discussed and reviewed. At the end of the audit a report is prepared for acknowledgement and acceptance by your company representative. Any corrective actions arising from the audit are discussed and any forward plan of work agreed, including a follow-up visit if needed.
Verification is through an audit surveillance programme that is carried out through yearly surveillance visits organised to fit in with your business requirements.
