Businesses often see internal audit as a non-value added activity leading to meaningless findings, bureaucracy, and cumbersome processes. And in spite of having an internal audit program, management is often surprised when they receive a 483, Warning Letter, or even a Consent Decree.
Internal Audit is a required part of an effective quality system. More importantly, it is an incredibly powerful tool to identify areas of non-compliance. A well designed audit program can be an effective tool in understanding, communicating, and reducing compliance risk.
However, estimates indicate that up to 75% of companies conduct audits only because they are required to by regulation. This webinar can help companies use internal audit as the powerful tool it is meant to be.
Why attend this webinar:
1. Continuous Improvement starts with awareness of issues and opportunities.
2. Management lacks awareness of the issues within their quality system.
3. Management is blind to the gaps in the quality system and the risk that poses for the company.
4. Management is blind to the impact on product quality and risk to the customer.
5. This webinar will highlight red-flags and ways reduce compliance and quality risk.
