AS9100D Internal Audit Program Implementation

One of the most important requirements for AS91XX series and other quality standards, is to create, implement and maintain an effective Internal Audit Program. An improperly designed and implemented Internal Audit Program could result in non-conformances leading companies to improperly identifying and describing non-conformances, applying incomplete or inadequate root cause analyses, establishing ineffective corrective actions, implementing incomplete Internal Auditor Qualification Programs, etc. A well-developed auditing program enables the monitoring of and improvements to the effectiveness of the Quality Management System (QMS) which will reduce risk and cost of non-conformances.
