Take Corrective Action on Your Internal Audit Process
Andy Nichols writes that you may need to conduct "corrective
action" on your existing internal audit program before
conducting a full gap analysis of your 1994-conforming QMS
to eliminate any nonconformities with the requirements of
Subclause 8.2.2 and the process approach driving ISO 9001:2000.
To help you understand what the obvious and hidden changes
to internal auditing are and mean with ISO 9001:2000, Nichols
examines the requirements in 8.2.2 and shows how an audit
program should be conducted to reduce the chance your QMS
will end up with a less-than-best audit program.
