Webinar: Management Systems and Auditing

This webinar introduces the benefits of management systems and looks at the steps required to fulfil the ISO obligations, including the high-level commonalities, risk management and process approaches that underpin the various standards (ISO 9001, 14001 etc). We discuss systems integration, and whether, under particular circumstances standalone or integrated approaches are most suitable. Lastly, we explore three types of audit, namely performance-based, product-based, and regulatory-based audits, and how they can support your management system objectives and drive continual improvement of your business outcomes.

What the session will cover:

1. Management System elements

  • What is the PDCA framework?
  • What is the process approach?
  • What is risk-based thinking?
  • How do I set objectives and targets?

2. The importance of supporting processes

3. Integrated Systems

  • What are the pros and cons of integration?
  • How do I determine whether integration is appropriate?

4. Auditing basics and types

  • Audit overview and principles
  • Performance Audits
  • Regulatory Audits
  • Product (Life Cycle) Audits

Who should attend?

  • Those thinking about or planning to develop management systems who want to understand more about the standards and their commonalities for easy integration
  • Those who are wanting to gain a greater understanding of management systems or audits
  • Anyone who has an interest in systems auditing, particularly those who are seeking audits of their own systems
