All Auditors must re-qualify to be able to audit to the 2015 versions of ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. This requirement is necessary because these revised standards have been radically changed and now use Annex SL as the basis of the standards. In addition, there is the change of emphasis to “risk based thinking”.
Last December I also had to attend a transition course to keep my own IRCA qualification up to date.
Over the years we have trained a good number of internal auditors and it is important that they transition to the new standards to enable them to carry out audits in the future.
We are taking bookings for our next internal auditing course to be held in Colchester, Essex on
This cost effective two day course will provide you with the necessary training to carry out internal audits in your workplace to the ISO9001:2015, ISO14001: 2014 or OHSAS 18001 (which will be updated to ISO 45001 this year).
Remember if your company systems transition to the new (2015) standards you will not be able to carry out internal audits unless you attend a course to update your knowledge. Most Certification Bodies will expect to see evidence in the form of a certificate that the auditor has transitioned.
Don’t let your internal auditor qualification lapse
