Internal audits are an essential part of a successful management system, and can really help your organisation to identify and lock in improvements. It's not surprising that they are a mandatory requirement of standards such as ISO 9001 (Quality), OHSAS 18001 and AS/NZS 480 (Health & Safety), and ISO 14001 (Environment). Failure to adequately schedule and perform internal audits is one of the most frequent reasons for nonconformances issued by certification bodies. However, not having enough trained auditors available can cause many organisations to miss out on achieving the benefits they should, and struggle to meet compliance requirements.
