A Registrar Q&A: The ISO 9001:2000 TransitionAuditing
THE OUTLOOK has challenged five registrars and RAB
to provide answers to the ninth question in this series: Subclause
8.2.2, Internal Audit, requires an organizations auditing
program to be planned taking the results of previous audits
into account and with expectation that corrective actions
be taken "without undue delay" to eliminate nonconformities.
First, how far back in the internal audit records should the
internal auditors go in planning and/or revising the audit
program? Second, how will internal and registrar auditors
assess what does and does not constitute "undue delay"?
