One of the most common misunderstandings about ISO 9001 certification is what must be in place to successfully pass a certification audit. This confusion most often stems from previous experience with ISO 9001 certification at a previous organisation, or what’s been “heard through the grapevine” over the years. The question to ask is “Are these comments really valid?”
The audit process can be quite stressful – especially in the initial stages of certification when you are not quite sure how the process will work.The best way to reduce this stress is through good preparation.
A few months back we started following Jackie's journey to complete the 96km Kokoda Trail. The passionate auditor cleverly introduces relevant clauses of the ISO certifications and links them to parts of her training journey - weighing up the risks vs. the rewards along the way. Jackie's expertise in auditing has helped her use the best practice to ensure she is fully prepared both physically and mentally for the gruelling journey that is Kokoda.
