    Hello Everyone,

    Would like to seek advise on the Internal Audit Report. I'm performing Internal Audit. I have no specific checklist, only Audit Report. Every internal auditors have to complete the Audit Report with the NC or Observation if have.

    My idea is to have a one complete checklist report which consist of all clauses. If possible i would prefer to have less reporting but sufficient.

    Kindly advise.

    Thank you.

    HaLina

    I wouldn't do it that way. If you want to use checklists as a guide make them according to each process.

    Are you the internal audit process owner? If not you should seek guidance from the process owner.

    I am waiting until after management review in January 2018 to do our internal audits. Reason is, there are a lot of requirements of the new standard that will be met during that management review including, risk management, COTO, quality objectives, and the new requirements for the management review itself.
    Our 2015 ISO audit will be in April next year, so I'll have time to collect evidence for any N/C that should arise from our internal audits.

    We usually advise against "canned checklists," especially those that just list all the clauses, because a given process will include some clauses and not others. That is probably why the process auditing method is encouraged. Additionally, I have never once met a process owner who is interested in seeing all of the clauses listed, and conformance/nonconformance of each indicated. I put an audit manager tool kit in the Resource forum.

    Exactly so, Jennifer! Turning the standard into a set of questions is almost useless as a true internal audit tool. It doesn't deal with many aspects of a fully effective internal audit program and is likely to head people in entirely the wrong direction.

    If you have a copy of the standard, why do you need to transform the statements into questions just to identify if you have the relevant documents for each clause?
