This Internal Audit Training will discuss the tools and techniques to design, implement and maintain the internal audit system to prevent audit system problems. The internal audit system must be successful for the business to be successful.

Internal auditing is the key activity to ensure that your FDA or ISO compliant quality system continues to be suitable and effective.The internal audit system must be efficient, effective and most importantly, user-friendly. However, more often than not, internal audit programs can have their own inbred set of problems that may cause delays, inefficiencies and outright failure. These problems can include:

  • Perceptions of the work force
  • Workload of the audit staff
  • System design inefficiencies
  • Lack of management support
  • Poor corrective action tracking and timely closure

Without an effective, efficient and supported internal audit system, the culture of compliance will deteriorate and the loss of registration or a warning letter becomes more of a possibility. Each of these issues have been experienced and managed to closure by the presenters.
