Why Should You Attend:

Whether you are a novice in managing audits, or a well-experienced professional, managing audit with multiple auditors and multiple audit paths can be especially challenging.

Do you know

  • Why audit management is important in the success of an audit?
  • What resources are needed for the audit team? (Rooms, internet access, etc.)
  • How to identify persons who will be involved in the audit?
  • How to prepare each audit team member for their specific role as an Audit Leader, Subject Matter Expert, Back Room Leader, Back Room Staff and runners, Audit Scribe, Audit Coordinator, and support staff?
  • How to prepare schedules for each audit track and the resources needed?
  • How to communicate audit preparation details to senior management?
  • How to communicate audit preparation to all affected employees?
  • How to manage scheduling changes and conflicts?

This course is designed to help you overcome these challenges.

Today’s Quality System and regulatory audits are becoming more complex, as regulations and practices change. With the advent of the revised European Union Medical Device Regulations, (EU MDR) and the implementation of the Medical Device Single Audit Program (MDSAP), many companies will experience a reduction in the overall number of external audits, but a significant expansion in the scope and coverage of the audit. ISO registrars may be auditing for compliance to multiple regulations and product specific requirements. Companies will continue to be expected to provide documents, records and SME’s in a timely manner. With the advent of programs such as MDSAP, response times may be more restrictive, and delays could result in derogatory audit results.

For global and matrixed organizations, these expanded audits can be especially challenging, due to operations in various geographies, time zones, and regulatory environments. Preparation is vital and this course is designed to provide the processes and tools to help you with that preparation and to ensure effective audit management, regardless of the audit’s complexity.
