Face the audits
Pages 8

The audits are conducted to ensure that the company is adhering to the requirements of the standards, and are following their procedures that are written in order to achieve their organization goals. A periodic audit helps the auditee to take corrective actions on the deviations and align the processes inline with the requirements. This helps in reducing the mistakes. Audits may be internal or external, but have the same objective of ensuring compliance to the systems and to highlight the deviations for taking actions. Audits are the eye openers and help in detecting the deviations in the beginning itself, before it grows as a major problem or become fatal. The studies and experiences have shown that eliminating a problem at seed stage is easier than removing a grown tree.
