Internal Audits

Maintaining an effective internal ISO audit programme can be difficult.  Lack of time and knowledge of the ISO requirements e.g. ISO 9001, ISO 14001, AS 9100, ISO 13485, ATEX and ISO 45001 etc, availability of competent auditors and staff turnover often result in audits failing to add value. Using SHA’s Dorset based IRCA registered auditor will ensure your ISO audit programme goes to plan and adds value by identifying system deficiencies and opportunities for improvement.  Some of the advantages are:


  • audits will be on time and according to your audit plan
  • a fresh pair of eyes will provide independence and objectivity
  • extensive ISO 9001, ISO 14001, AS9100, ISO 13485, ATEX and ISO 45001
  • audit findings will be constructive and will promote improvement
  • audits carried out professionally by a competent IRCA registered QMS 2015 auditor
  • no need to take staff away from their main duties to carry out audits
  • no last minute panics prior to Certification Body / customer audits
  • no shocks during Certification Body / customer audits
  • the auditor can represent your company during Certification Body or customer audits
  • practical advise can be given regarding audit corrective actions


A comment received from a UKAS accredited Certification Body auditing a client’s ISO 9001 QMS;

“The sampled audits challenge to good effect the areas/processes being audited.  The resulting reports were excellent and indicative of a very thorough investigation with clearly presented findings that ably demonstrated system effectiveness.”
