Outsourcing of First Party Audits (Internal Audits / Process Audits) and Second Party Audits

All ISO certified organizations are supposed to plan and conduct internal audits at periodic intervals to determine whether their quality management system conforms to the planned arrangements & the established system and whether their quality management system is effectively implemented and maintained.

One of the requirements is that the auditors shall not audit their own work and the selection of auditors & conduct of audits shall ensure objectivity & impartiality of the audit process.

Audit, by definition given in ISO 9000 standard is a systematic, independent and documented process for obtaining audit evidence and evaluating it objectively to determine the extent to which the audit criteria are fulfilled.

Internal auditing is a critical process and non-fulfillment of the requirement can result in the issuance of a major nonconformity during audits by certification agencies.

Although it is recommended that internal audits should be conducted by the employees of the company, but many companies do not have skilled and competent internal auditors who can conduct impartial audits and provide inputs for improvement. Time is also a constraint for some companies. In such cases, the organization shall either train or retrain their employees in internal auditing techniques and methodologies or can outsource the internal audit activity.

Many companies whether ISO certified or not, regularly conduct process audits because of business compulsions and visionary leadership of the top management to become and remain the best in their class.
