Answer:

The Stage 1 audit is often called a ‘documentation review’ audit because the auditor will review your documentation to establish whether it is in line with the requirements of the standard. This stage is more of a ‘reconnaissance’ audit, or a ‘pre-assessment’, whereby the auditor does a high-level review of your management system and establishes whether the internal audit programme is in place.

Stage 1 is completed on-site to determine whether your management system has met the minimum requirements of the standard and is ready for a certification audit. The auditor will point out any areas of nonconformity and potential improvements of the management system.

Documents to be reviewed during this stage of the audit are all the documents that belong to the scope of your management system, this includes documents required by the standard itself and the ones that the organization determined as necessary for effective maintenance of the manage ment system.
