Electronic auditing, or e-auditing, is computer-assisted auditing that uses electronic records to complete part or all of your audit. This follows similar procedures as a traditional audit but using electronic means to remotely perform the audit. E-auditing is also known as Remote Auditing.
For any number of reasons, having an assessor physically inside your walls for an assessment can prove needless with certain types of audits. Of course, it’s preferable, if not mandatory, depending on the nature of the audit, but we’re also moving into a period of time where technology has enabled new types of audits that often don’t require their presence.
This can be performed using video conferencing and screen sharing software including Google Hangouts, Skype, etc. All documents can be shared through Google Drive, Email or similar document sharing platforms.
Conducting an e-audit has many benefits including saving time, reduce the travel to remote regions, less paper required and, witnessing and tracking the audit in real-time.
Optional Gap Analysis
Performed by Best Practice, we evaluate your management system to each clause of the relevant standard. This will identify the level of compliance that your existing management system has.
Best Practice provides an assessment report outlining any faults in your management system that needs to be addressed prior to certification.
Stage 1 Assessment
The evaluation of your management system documentation, including policies, processes, management review records, scope and context as well as system implementation.
This sets the foundation for the stage two assessment.
Stage 2 Assessment
Best Practice needs to verify that the documented requirements of the standard are implemented across your business.
During an E-Audit an assessor will remotely partake in discussions with relevant individuals in your business.
Your management system is assessed and verified as being implemented.
Once your stage two assessment is verified and the process is complete, a 'Statement of Certification' is issued, confirming compliance with the relevant standard.
This certification is valid for a three-year period from the date of issue.
Regular surveillance assessments will be performed at a minimum of once every 12 months to maintain your certification.
