Audits must be designed to find nonconformances that need corrective action, and potential problems that require preventive action. Case studies are used to illustrate typical problems found during internal audits and how they can be resolved effectively. Well trained auditors are invaluable to management and provide assurance that the company is making continuous improvements to the quality system, as required by regulations. Significant audit finding and nonconformances are captured in the CAPA system which tracks outcomes. A well designed audit system reviews all functional areas at least annually. Effective internal audit programs add value by providing a higher level of customer satisfaction.
