Introduction To Remote auditing
Although there was no specific rule against it, conducting ISO certification audits and/or any ISO internal audit remotely was not warmly embraced by the industry.
However, current times are forcing organizations to re-think & do things differently. Many people believe that auditors cannot really be thorough when they are not in front of a document, an auditee or a group of people.
But auditors can perform audits remotely and still be thorough. Remote auditing may even be a more focused audit than when doing on-site audits.
1. Become familiar with the history and current status of remote auditing.
2. Acquire a basic understanding of the requirements.
3. Gain an insight as to how remote auditing may affect and benefit an organization.
4. Understand the remote auditing process.
