A guide to what makes a good ISO 9001 Quality Management System (QMS) audit has been produced by industry, government and a group of stakeholders involved in management systems certification. Launched on 9 June, Quality in the Supply Chain formed part of the UK’s celebrations for World Accreditation Day (WAD) 2019, as it tied in well with the theme – Adding Value to Supply Chains.
Aimed at both accredited certification bodies and those seeking certification, the guide covers the components that comprise a successful QMS audit.
Kevin Belson, Technical Manager at UKAS, said: “Supply chains are becoming ever more complex, often spanning multiple and diverse industries across international borders. Having confidence in the quality and performance of goods and services is vitally important if procurers are to manage risks effectively and develop the necessary trust to trade.” A copy of the guide is available on the UKAS website.
