Answer:
Actually, the management system standards do not prescribe that the whole QMS should be internally audited every year. However, all certified organizations internally audit their QMS every year because that is a requirement from the certification bodies, written in the contract between organizations and certification bodies.

The following material will provide you more information about internal audits:
