IQC - The ISO Pros
of Brookings, SD & ISO 9001 Experts
Getting Pre-Assessed does not necessarily have something to do with the real and the legitimate Certification that you can get against a standard that your company or your organization is applicable to get.
In simpler terms, Pre-Assessment Audits are never a requirement for a company or for an organization no matter how big, small, or how old a particular company or organization is. But why do companies and organizations get Pre-Assessment Audits? What is it with Pre-Assessment Audits that are so dear and essential to them?
Before we go over that, let us try to dissect what a Pre-Assessment Audit is first because, from that alone, we would have clues on why it’s important as many businesses think of it to be.
Pre-Assessment Audits: Explained
Pre-Assessment Audits are considered and known to be “Practice Audits” wherein a company or an organization is given the opportunity to look at what their processes are and how they can improve it to prepare for the Certification Audit.
It’s like a mock audit but everything that will happen and transpire in a real Certification Audit will be done and carried out in the Pre-Assessment Audits as well.
Benefits of Conducting Pre-Assessment Audits
Some of the most common and the most widely seen reasons why Pre-Assessment Audits are considered relevant include:
- Helps in the identification and the straightening of all non-compliant and non-conforming activities and processes;
- Provides relevant and essential information to the company or the organization about the improvements they can make and adjust to;
- Enables your company to have an aerial view of how the business or the organization is behaving and how it’s abiding by certain rules and regulations; and
- Many more!
It’s not required – and that’s primarily one of the reasons why only a few companies and organizations do it. However, wouldn’t be too much of a hassle if you don’t pass the real Certification Audit right away?
With a Pre-Assessment Audit, businesses and organizations can have a chance to straighten everything out without incurring serious sanctions and penalties!
