Second Party Audits-IQC ISO9001

Three (3) Types of ISO Audits

First Party Audits – First Party Audits are usually known and labeled as the Internal Audit; and in this type of audit, the company or the organization is the one that conducts and performs the audit to themselves. In cases where there’s no skilled and adept Auditor within your organization, you can choose the option of Outsourcing it.

Second Party Audits – Second Party Audits are the types of audits which are also referred to as, most commonly, the Supplier Audits. This is the type of ISO Audit in which a company or an organization audits and evaluates the performance or the overall competency of their supplier with the goal of assessing whether they’re capable enough of providing what they need.

Third-Party Audits – Last but definitely not least, Third Party Audits, also referred to as Certification Audits, are the types of audits in which a company is going to be audited or assessed by a third party assessor with the goal of checking if your business processes and operations abide by certain rules and regulations; or if you’re following what’s written in a contract.


ISO Audit Purposes

The purpose of the ISO Audit would be depending on the type of audit you wish to have; if you are to conduct a First Party Audit, your main goal and objective would be to track your processes and your operations to see if there can be improvements made – for the benefit of your business.
