Safely with our support through the audit
During an audit, gaps and improper answers are often kept concealed. Clumsy answers may often lead the auditor to discover existing nonconformities. With our support, navigating through the audit can be done with ease.
Challenges during the audit - you’ve probably been here before
An employee accidentally uncovered a mistake during an audit which led to a discovery of a gap in your QM System?
An audit consists of more than just hard facts and evidence. A cleverly formulated answer can often disguise non-conformities and with the right arguments, some discoveries can be pushed aside.
Usually, a global product portfolio can lead to international audits. Notified Bodies/Authorities have their own procedures, some of them even seem like rituals.
Being prepared for these “rituals” is the key. For an audit by ANVISA or the Korean GMP audit, it is highly recommended to have a native speaker or interpreter present.
Furthermore, beyond these inspections varying through the levels 1-3, the FDA has quite specific requirements which are often difficult to understand if the needed experience is not applicable.
