What is an Internal Audit?
The role of an internal audit is to independently assess a business’s processes, controls, management system and overall performance in order to provide recommendations for enhancements. The valuable insights that internal audits can provide help businesses to take fast, appropriate and effective actions to eliminate inefficiencies and prevent issues from occurring.
Internal audits also work effectively to check compliance with the implemented ISO management system and identify areas that need improvements or changes to be made to ensure compliance with the standard.
The benefits of an Internal Audit
Internal audits identify weaknesses, redundancies and wastage within the business and provides recommendations for streamlining, saving time and money.
- Robust Internal Controls
Evaluates internal controls, systems, structures and processes to ensure that the way they have been designed and implemented is working.
- Integrity and Reputation
Human error, fraud or just plain laziness cannot be underestimated or taken for granted. Internal audits can help to analyse and verify that everything and everyone is performing as they should be.
- Reduced Risk
Internal audits help to identify areas of risk and analyse if the current risk mitigations are working effectively and what needs to be done if they are not.
By ensuring that processes, systems and procedures are performing as they should, Internal audits put businesses in a much stronger position for when external audits and ISO recertification audits occur.
