The stages of an ISO audit can be summarised as follows:

Planning and Preparation:

  • The audit team reviews the organization's management system and relevant documentation.

  • The audit scope, objectives, and criteria are defined.

  • The audit plan is developed, including the audit schedule and logistics.

Opening Meeting:

  • The audit team meets with the organization's management to discuss the audit plan, scope, and logistics.

  • Roles and responsibilities are clarified, and any concerns or questions are addressed.

Document Review:

  • The audit team reviews the organization's documented procedures, policies, and records to verify compliance with the ISO standard.

  • This stage helps identify potential nonconformities or areas for improvement.

Site Inspection and Interviews:

  • The audit team conducts on-site observations and interviews with relevant personnel.

  • This stage allows the auditors to verify the implementation and effectiveness of the organization's management system.

Nonconformity Identification:

  • The audit team identifies any instances where the organization's practices do not meet the requirements of the ISO standard.

  • Nonconformities are documented, and the organization is required to address them.

Closing Meeting:

  • The audit team presents their findings, including any nonconformities and areas for improvement.

  • The organization's management is given the opportunity to provide feedback and discuss the next steps.

Audit Report and Follow-up:

  • The audit team prepares a detailed report summarizing the audit findings, nonconformities, and any recommendations.

  • The organization is required to develop and implement corrective actions to address the identified nonconformities.

  • The audit team may conduct a follow-up audit to verify the effectiveness of the corrective actions.

Certification or Recertification:

  • If the organization demonstrates compliance with the ISO standard, it may be awarded the corresponding certification.

  • For recertification audits, the organization must demonstrate continued compliance to maintain its certification.

  • The duration and complexity of each stage may vary depending on the size and complexity of the organization, the scope of the audit, and the specific ISO standard being evaluated.
