A key to efficiency and control.

In a world where quality is a decisive competitive factor, quality management plays a central role for companies. Effective control and monitoring of processes is essential to ensure that products and services meet customer expectations and fulfil legal requirements. In this context, auditing is of paramount importance.


An audit is a systematic, independent and documented process for obtaining audit evidence and evaluating it objectively in order to determine the extent to which audit criteria are met. In the context of quality management, this includes the review of processes, procedures, documentation and resources to ensure that quality standards are being met.


Auditing in quality management

Internal audits: These are carried out by internal employees or teams and are used to review internal processes in order to identify and rectify deficiencies. Internal audits are an important tool for continuous improvement and preparation for external audits.

External audits: External audits are carried out by independent organisations or authorities and are used to check compliance with quality standards and legal regulations. They can be carried out by certification bodies or state regulatory authorities, for example.


Ensuring compliance with standards: Through regular audits, companies can ensure that their processes and products comply with established quality standards, which helps to retain customers and safeguard the company's reputation.

Identifying potential for improvement: Audits allow companies to uncover weaknesses and inefficient processes and take action to continuously improve. This helps to increase efficiency and reduce costs.

Risk management: By systematically reviewing processes, potential risks can be identified and minimised at an early stage. This is particularly important in industries where safety and reliability are a high priority, such as healthcare or the food industry.

Compliance with legal requirements: External audits ensure that companies comply with the applicable legal requirements. This is not only a legal obligation, but also helps to minimise legal risks and avoid fines or loss of reputation.

Auditing in quality management is an essential part of corporate management that helps to ensure quality, increase efficiency and minimise risks. Through regular internal and external audits, companies can ensure that their processes meet the highest quality standards and thus guarantee long-term success and competitive advantages.
