IQC - The ISO Pros
of Elgin, IL & ISO 9001 Experts
In the ISO world, there are two (2) types of audits: Internal and External Audits. The two are pretty self-explanatory, and they really seem to be in contrast to one another. However, for the benefit of everyone not in the know, let’s try to tell each of them apart.
From its term alone, an Internal Audit is the type of audit that is performed and conducted within the reaches of a company or an organization. The auditors who perform Internal Audits are either employed by the organization (in-house) or outsourced.
The main goal of an Internal Audit is to assess and evaluate the performance of the company and see where they are in terms of achieving and reaching their goals and their objectives.
External Audits, on the contrary, are the types of audits that are done by a second party assessor or a third-party assessor. It can be an audit done by a customer to a business it is working with; a company or an organization to its supplier, or an audit conducted to speculate whether an organization is abiding by the rules, regulations, and requirements set by a particular standard.
What Do You Need?
How would you know what type of audit you need for your business or your organization? It will all depend on what goals you need or want for the particular ISO Audit you want to perform. If you want your business or your organization to do better, to look at what improvements can be made internally, an Internal Audit might be the one you need.
On the other hand, if you want to see how your business’ performance is rated externally, or by other organizations and institutions, performing an External Audit would be the most effective and efficient.
