We are living in a period of restrictions on travel, increased social distancing, working remotely and all sorts of changes in trying to keep manufacturing operations afloat, effective and customers satisfied.
That said, there are still certain requirements that must be met to meet certified quality management system (QMS) standards. One of these requirements is to perform scheduled internal audits on your quality management system.
Insyte Consulting is ready to assist manufacturers who may not be able to perform their scheduled internal audits, due to the present conditions. By utilizing today’s technology, we can perform these required audits (eAudits or remote audits) as we would do if we could be on-site.
In order to complete the documentation portion of the audit we can create a mechanism for the company to upload their documents into a secure folder from which we can read the documents. This folder can also be used to upload any records that can be used as objective evidence. Other ways objective evidence can be obtained would be through audio or visual interviews with personnel, utilizing phones for photos / video or sharing of desktops.
As with any audit, an eAudit is a sampling to insure that the company is following their stated procedures and meeting the requirements of the certified standard. At the conclusion of any audit, eAudit or on-site, we will provide you with a comprehensive summarized report of the findings.
Insyte Consulting encourages each manufacturer to contact their registrar to inquire about performing eAudits.
