An effective internal audit program is indispensable for continuous improvement

Both the ISO and the FDA require an internal audit program of an organization’s Quality Management Systems. This is a core requirement. The simplest way to understand an internal audit system is that it is a tool to assess or inspect an organization’s Quality System.

Apart from helping organizations to fulfill the requirements of auditing set out by the ISO and the FDA and other regulatory bodies, audits, be they internal or external; carry manifold advantages. These are some of them:

o  Organizations can apply best practices relevant to their industry through audits

o  Audits help organizations to identify where they need to improve

o  Audits play a stellar role in ensuring the quality of products, which leads to enhance customer satisfaction

o  They help organizations to take preventive actions with which bigger problems can be checked

Most organizations think of audits as an unpleasant duty

Although internal and external audits are considered so useful; it is a fact that most organizations carry them out only because it is thrust upon them. Most companies lack the conviction and volition for an audit, and drag their feet when it comes to this important task. The many benefits of an audit program are usually overlooked by 75% of companies.

What happens to organizations that are not diligent when it comes to carrying out audits? They are sure to receive penal actions from the FDA, which range from Warning Letters, 483’s to penalties to Consent Decree.
