Conducting internal audits is an integral component of instituting, sustaining, and enhancing your quality system, a pivotal element for the success of your business. Whether you are part of a pharmaceutical company aligning with the "self-inspection" prerequisites outlined in the PIC/S Guide to Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) or a medical device company adhering to the "internal audit" specifications of ISO 13485, implementing an internal audit program across your organization serves multiple purposes. It not only imparts knowledge to personnel but also reinforces accountability for various elements within the quality system, fostering a culture of continuous improvement and driving cost reductions.

The value derived from internal audits remains consistent regardless of the maturity level of your organization's quality system. If you find yourself seeking ways to optimize and extract more value from your self-inspection/internal audit program, this course is tailored to assist you in achieving your Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).
