The Diagnostic Audit - More than Just a Gap Analysis
SSQC's registration services begin with a diagnostic audit of your current systems and practices. The information the audit provides is a baseline for prioritizing and planning process development and other registration-related activities.
The audit report identifies the key areas requiring attention to ensure that your business systems and practices leverage best practice and comply with the ISO 9001 model - and sector-specific guidance such as ISO 90003 (for software). In addition to serving as a needs analysis, the value added audit demonstrates management's priorities for product and work environment quality and gathers objective feedback from all levels of the organization.
The audit report includes recommendations for correcting identified problems and for improving and enhancing processes that are already effective.
