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.
