Changes to the process approach to auditing since September 18, 2015
When the previous version of this webinar was recorded, the final draft of the ISO 13485:2016 standard had not yet been released. In addition, the current version of the guidelines for quality system auditing was updated in 2018 (ISO 19011:2018). There were no changes to the requirements for internal quality audits in the 2016 standard, but the clause numbering shifted from Clause 8.2.2 to 8.2.4. This shift was necessary to accommodate the addition of Clause 8.2.2 for complaint handling and Clause 8.2.3 for reporting to regulatory authorities.
The changes to ISO 19011 were more significant. ISO 19011:2018 includes the addition of the risk-based approach to auditing as one of the seven principles of auditing. Three sections of the guidance were also expanded: 1) audit program management, 2) how to conduct an audit, and 3) generic competency requirements for auditors. There was also an expansion of the concept of virtual audits (i.e. remote auditing) in Annex A of the guidance. The expansion of Annex A also included guidance on other new auditing concepts: organizational context, leadership, commitment, compliance, and supply chain.
Description of the process approach webinar
How to audit using the process approach webinar reviews how to effectively utilize the process approach to auditing. It also includes bonus materials. Internal auditors receive audit training and are generally told to use the process approach. Unfortunately, most auditors still use checklists organized by procedure or clauses of the ISO standard. However, checklists ignore process inputs and outputs and instead ask auditors to verify that a specific requirement of a procedure or the ISO standard has been met. Even though most auditors record objective evidence of the records sampled and the person interviewed, the checklist approach results in a superficial audit. Accredited lead auditor classes are required to teach the use of process turtle diagrams instead. Process turtle diagrams are a simple, seven-part tool used to take notes when you are auditing. All you need is a pen, a blank piece of paper, and training on how to use the process approach.
How to audit using the process approach webinar covers:
- What is the process approach to auditing?
- Why is the process approach more efficient than audit checklists?
- What is a turtle diagram?
- In what order should you ask audit questions?
- Who should you assign to each process and why?
- How you can add more value during audits?
