Auditing to ISO 9001:2015

ISO Technical Committee 176 is responsible for the development of ISO 9001. You can view their website at this web page.

A related ISO 9001 Auditing Practices Group is an informal group of quality management system experts, auditors, and practitioners from ISO/TC 176 and the International Accreditation Forum (IAF).

The APG website has been established as an on-line source of papers and presentations on auditing a quality management system (QMS). The provided ideas, examples, and explanations reflect the process-based approach that is essential for auditing the requirements of ISO 9001.

The papers and presentations that make up the content of this website are not definitive. They reflect a number of different views in QMS auditing. As such, their content may not always be consistent. It is not intended that the website’s content will be used as specified requirements, an industry benchmark, or as criteria that all QMS auditors, consultants, or practitioners have to follow.

I suggest you see their 20 papers on Auditing to ISO 9001:2015. You can view the APG website by clicking on this link and then you can download any of the documents listed below:
