Are audit checklists dead? No. However, to be an effective tool, they should be restructured to drop the canned clause-based questions and identify the expected evidence.

Are you considering use of an audit checklist? Have you been told they are no longer recommended and may even cause audits to be ineffective? Before deciding if checklists are really dead, learn about a different type of checklist – one without canned questions limited to the requirements of a standard. Instead, use a checklist containing all the requirement types and an answer key of expected evidence.

Have you discontinued use of audit checklists? You might want to reconsider that decision. Your checklist may have been the wrong type to be an effective tool. This webinar provides examples of an improved audit checklist, as well as, how to use the information from a process diagram and the plan-do-check-act methodology to develop a more valuable checklist.
