Conducting Internal Audits

 

Taking place:

Friday, June 09, 2017 - 03:00 PM - 04:00 PM UK Time

This is a 10.00 AM Eastern US Start
 
Presenter:

Alma Sue Haiduk, Director of Quality Assurance, AIB International
 

Webinar Overview:

Gain the upper hand when you understand significant differences between self-inspections and internal audits and can identify and correct potential non-conformances before your certification auditor finds them. During this webinar, we will touch on how to manage your Internal Audit Program in coordination with other management systems, such as corrective action and management review. This presentation will be helpful for all internal audit team members and management who support the internal audit protocol.

ken warner : that way we can make sure that procedures are understood
VASU PADMANABHAN : It is important to talk to many and confirm your findings and underrstanding
Zoe : True - it gives you an overview on the quality and understanding of the training
Iryna Dyachenko : might not speak the language of the auditor -- see practically as well
ROCHELLE : The auditor will be able to assess what is understood by the interviwees. and possible if the training may need to be focused on the areas not well understood. 
Ruth : True, shows training effectiveness or training needs
evelyn : True- engaging others is very benefitial
Milynda : one person does not provide information that all person working in that section understands what they are required to do
Theophilus Fon : Interviewing multiple individuals is a good way to corroborate information and to make a good decision

Kayley : 5 why's 
Rick Noteboom : there is always a rootcause steve
Hassan : Thanks Ivan! 
Mohamed : What is the difference between critical NC and Major NC 
Renae : if you find a non critical non conformance do you still need a do a CAPA? 
steve : always? a procedure not communicated ...root cause is what then?
sharon : KAYLEY what do you mean by the 5 whys?
Sheetal : Does Internal audit N/C needs preventive controls measure?
Rick Noteboom : communicatin failure 
Ahmed : How to appear the different between GMP and GHP on the chick list
Kimberly : Steve - you may want to conduct a 5-why or fish bone to discover the root cause
steve : 5 whys make much more sense then communication failure
Kayley : find a problem, why did it happen? get you snwer, did it find the root cause? repeat process. ususally you can go back why 5 times to find your root cause
Kimberly : 5-Why = Keep asking why 5 times = often leads to the Root Cause of an issue
Liz : SQF Version 8 code is requesting monthly reports to Management, so perfect time to bring to their attention.
michelle zimmerman : monthly reports? what section?
Dennis Grayson : Are audits still using OI's? Opportunity for Improve?ment
Rick Noteboom : i mean the procedure for internal communication might be incorrect, or is there another reason why communication failed in this case?
Kimberly : For "non-critical" non-conformances you need to assess your risk. You should want to have something put in place to close the gap on your risk.
Dennis Grayson : I was under the impression that OI's were no longer used in auditing? (Opportunity for Improvement)
Colin : What do you guys think is the best internal cycle? monthly, quarterly, 6 month, annual?
Liz : we use to have quarterly meetings but SQF Version 8 code is effective in September
mwenda : It may depend on the level of training for such personel otherwise multiple individual may mislead you and you may not attain your objective
Kayley : you could always offer a reccomendation on your audit summary
Barbara : continuous improvement
Kimberly : Colin - Your review cycle should be based off risk. Unless your audit dictates a frequency.
Frank : Is a riskmitigation process that focuses on the entire business
Alex Velte : only siths speak in absolutes....
Adrienne : Should take into account anything pertinent
Ildi : It focuses on your organization
