It is a 3-year cycle with an audit each year
Stage 1 Audit – Requirements
Have planned and implemented an internal audit program and management review.
Have at least a 3-month history of internal audit results and actions.
The management system has been implemented to a level that indicates that you are ready for a Stage 2 audit.
Stage 2 Audit
The purpose is to evaluate the implementation, including effectiveness of your system.
Your auditor will provide a detailed report which will include a recommendation on your certification. This will be reviewed by our certification panel who will make the final decision.
This is the certification audit and you can only be certified if you have no major non-conformities against the standard.
Surveillance Year 1 & Year 2
This audit will be conducted annually to ensure the system is being maintained in accordance with the requirements. It is not a full system audit but will cover all requirements across the two-year surveillance period.
If the auditor does not have confidence in the stability of your system surveillance audits may be scheduled more frequently.
You will be given 3 months to address any major non-conformities and minor non-conformities must be addressed by the next audit – Year 2 & 3.
At the end of the 3-year period we will conduct a re-certification audit to ensure all of the requirements are being met. This will be the same as the Stage 2 audit.
You can only be certified if you have no major non-conformities against the standard. We will schedule your audit to provide sufficient time to address any major non-conformities prior to the expiry of your certification. – Year 4.
