  • ISO 9001 and Gap Analysis and Internal Audit

    A) As far as getting help, I need to understand better the stage 1 audit (what is being done exactly (checklist with each clause and the mention whether it is present or not in the auditee organization? How to re-use the checklist for stage 2 - a bit septic of generic/standard checklist) and eventually discussed with auditee (Past management reviews and audits some people say) to assess readiness for stage 2.

    B) I also was very interested with your discussion on the gap analysis vs internal audit and the different perspectives of each. Is the checklist the same? With additional column in the case of internal audit to write what is actually being found and observed. Is this right?

    C) I was also interested in the different ways to organize an internal audit: department by department, process by process or clause by clause. I am wondering when it is best to choose which anda whether there is such a thing a department x clause and process x clause matrices.
