ISO/IEC Internal Audit: Ensuring Quality Standards

ISO/IEC Internal Audit is a systematic and independent assessment of an organization's quality management system, processes, and activities, to determine whether the organization is meeting its objectives and conforming to applicable standards and regulations. It includes a review of the organization's policies, procedures, and processes, and an assessment of the effectiveness of the organization's quality management system. It also includes an evaluation of the organization's internal control systems, risk management processes, and the accuracy and completeness of the organization's records. The internal audit process is designed to identify areas of non-conformance, areas of improvement, and to provide recommendations for corrective action. The objective of ISO/IEC Internal Audit is to ensure that the organization has effective quality management systems in place that meet its objectives and comply with applicable standards and regulations.
