Does the thought of an AEO, HMRC, BIS, ISO or customer audit fill you with fear or confidence? Is it a nuisance or an opportunity? Are you spending  a fortune on external audits and hours of effort on correcting non-conformities or failures?

As an integral part of regulatory or Standards compliance, continuous improvement and audit readiness, internal business process reviews or internal audits need to take place regularly.   Employing external auditors to conduct these reviews and audits can be costly and disruptive; a more efficient approach may be to conduct your own internal reviews or audits.  

This course will help you develop the skills to confidently identify, review and manage your internal controls, systems and processes giving managers, customers and external auditors the assurance they need that your business is well managed and meets required standards. Effective internal audits and reviews will assist your organisation to identify, manage and mitigate risks.

On this course participants will learn how to:


  •     Plan and organise reviews and audits
  •     Identify relevant information sources
  •     Create and use checklists
  •     Identify and assess evidence
  •     Select the review or audit team
  •     Set the appropriate frequency of review or audits
  •     Conduct reviews and audits
  •     Avoid pitfalls 
  •     Minimise resistance
  •     Report & follow-up findings


As with all of our courses this training focuses on the practical rather than just the theoretical. The tutor has broad and extensive personal experience of designing and implementing effective internal compliance reviews and audits within many different businesses and sectors.

The course will be of benefit to anyone who is involved in process improvement, continuous improvement, quality management and compliance to Standards such as AEO, ISO 9000, ISO 27000, ISO 28000, ISO 14000, Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), SSAE16, ISAE 3402.
