An effective audit plan must be based on functional processes supported by relevant ISO 9001 subclauses. In addition, the flow of audit plan and amount of time to be spent on functional departments must be risk based.
An organization receives an ISO 9001:2015 certificate from the ISO Registrar following successfully passing stage 1 and stage 2 audits. An auditor receives ISO 9001:2015 certificate following successful acceptance of his/her auditor application (auditor training, competence and auditing experience) by auditor certification body.
The ISO 9001:2015 requirements course provides understanding of requirements of ISO 9001:2015 Standard which is used as criteria or a benchmark for auditing. Without the knowledge and understanding of ISO 9001:2015, the auditor/lead auditor will not be able to perform an effective and efficient audit.
