ISO 9001 Process Based Internal Auditing

Internal auditing is fundamental to all management system standards as it is the means to establish compliance, as well as verify the suitability and effectiveness of the system.  A process-based approach advocates assessment of the inputs, outputs and control within a process, as well as its interactions with other processes, and is especially helpful in identifying weak links between processes and opportunities for continual improvement.
