Internal Audit (2)

Benefits of Outsourcing Your Internal Audit


Texas Quality Assurance's team of certified Lead Auditors are here to partner with you for your QMS, EMS, OHS, or Oil & Gas QA Audit. The practice of outsourcing some or all of the internal audit function to an independent organization affords an organization numerous benefits over maintaining an employee-only internal audit function. Some of these benefits include:

  1. Objectivity – no more worrying about “not auditing your own work”
  2. Expert Knowledge – it’s our full time job to know the standards and how to help you work within them
  3. Lower Business Impact – Our auditors can conduct your audit in a fraction of the time with greater efficiency than a traditional self-audit
  4. Lower Employment Costs – second party internal audits remove the need to hire and staff lead auditors, leave it to the experts at TQA

Texas Quality Assurance believes a Process Based Internal Audit is the easiest approach.  WE subscribe to the tried and true plan, do, check, act process.  Through a process audit, we are better able to identify required inputs, compared to outputs, that are checked against pre-defined measures and objectives.

According to ISO 9001, your internal audit should at a minimum evaluate:

  1. Conformity of products and services
  2. The degree of customer satisfaction
  3. The performance and effectiveness of the quality management system
  4. If planning has been implemented effectively
  5. The effectiveness of actions taken to address risks and opportunities
  6. The performance of external providers
  7.  The need for improvements to the quality management system
