It is often difficult to assess whether a company meets its objectives with the current system structure and set of activities. Auditing is an efficient and reliable management tool that you can use to increase the focus on the workings of the company and on its potential for improvement.
Audit provides an overview of company potential and opportunities for improvement
Our audits provide an objective assessment of your company that gives you a factual basis for decision-making and development. The audit also gives you an overview of the company's potential and pinpoints the available opportunities for improvement.
Additionally, we offer consultancy on, and assessment of, the available alternatives so that you can choose the solutions that best suit your business, and are most cost-effective.
Audit benefits your customers
Auditing your business benefits your customers. Most companies have a potential for increased efficiency, and auditing will help you realise this potential. This will allow your products / services to become sharper and more focused on the customer and the opportunities in the market.
If your company is part of a complex supply chain, we can use auditing to determine to what degree your business processes fulfil the requirements of your customers. This may enable you to increase customer satisfaction.
Audit with an appreciative, risk-based and value-added approach
Auditing is a necessity if you want to keep your management systems optimised and up-to-date. We offer audit in relation to customer requirements, contracts, and standards such as:
- ISO 9001: Quality Management
- ISO 14001: Environmental Management
- OHSAS 18001 / ISO 45001: Occupational Health and Safety Management
- ISO 31000: Risk Management
- ISO 17025: General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories
- ISO 22000: Food Safety Management
- GMP: Good Manufacturing Practice
We provide services for small and medium-sized enterprises as well as multinational corporations, with a global scope.
We use an appreciative approach with a focus on the risks that may arise in relation to the company’s processes. The audit process creates value in the company, by scrutinising and evaluating the company procedures to find opportunities for improvement.
Risk-based auditing adds value to your company
Risk-based audit is a unique tool for improving the focus on the management of key elements and processes of a business. We use the risk-based auditing approach for:
- Internal audits
- Supply chain audits
- Fine tuning of management system efficiency
By focusing on aspects such as economy, environment, health, social responsibility, and quality, risk-based auditing can identify valuable process improvement opportunities that are often overlooked in the traditional compliance audit.
We also supply training on risk management, and risk-based auditing, as customised competency development programs for your in-house auditors.
Evaluation of existing management systems
We assist you in auditing whether your company complies with the existing management systems in daily life, and thus to assess the level of system implementation. Our services cover everything from GAP analysis, through internal audits to supplier audits.
When performing a GAP analysis we use your procedures and business processes as our starting point. The analysis pinpoint which system elements are missing in order for your system to comply with the desired standard.
There are several good reasons for letting an impartial external body perform your internal audits:
- Your organisation gets professional and systematic sparring
- We can audit areas that you cannot or may not, such as the audit of your own QHSE organisation
- We see your company, and the system, with different eyes, and give you a “second opinion”
- You may use us to even out your resource requirements
