From Audit Program to Audit Planning

In this series, we will explain to you how to streamline your audit planning.

Effective planning is crucial for flawless audits by certification bodies. Assigning tasks based on auditors’ competencies ensures success and reliability. However, planning a large team of auditors with different standards and multiple sites can be challenging, especially when deciding whether to execute combined, integrated, or campus-level audits.
