Could you please assist us (as new trained Auditors) with advice on how to audit the top management of the organization?
The organization has different directors of departments and heads of units who are all referred to as top management according to our organization.
Do we have to audit the Director general only or do all directors have to be audited during auditing of top management?
ISO 9000:2015 defines top management as “person or group of people who directs and controls an organization at the highest level”. Normally, auditing top management means auditing the member of the top management responsible for the quality management system (QMS). Auditing top management may mean auditing the owner of an organization, or the member of an Administration board responsible for the QMS.
