Stage 1 Audit:
(Part of which is on generally on site) , provides a focus for planning the Main Audit, reviews documentation specific to your business and works with your staff to quickly resolve any problems.
Stage II Audit (Main Audit Visit ):
The Main Audit measures the effectiveness of the Management System in managing your 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.
Certification Approval & Surveillance Programme When your Management System complies with the relevant standard a certificate of approval is issued, which is valid for three years, subject to satisfactory on-going maintenance of your Management System. Verification is through an audit surveillance programme that is carried out through yearly surveillance visits organised to fit in with your business requirements.
Three-yearly Re-assessment Visit Every 3 years your quality management system needs to be re-assessed. Following satisfactory reassessment your certificate is reissued for a further three years.
