Remote Audits

Why remote audits? 

According to current regulations, an audit of the supplier is usually needed as part of the supplier qualification. When the world situation is as it is with travel restrictions, many of these audits cannot be performed. This can be solved with a remote audit (distant assessment), which can be seen as a paper-based audit but with the addition of performing parts of the audit via a web meeting.  

Bruun & Maté has developed a "best practice" on how a remote audit can be done. The main steps are: 

A risk assessment is performed in collaboration with the customer to evaluate what is important that it is ensured during the audit. 

  1. A detailed audit plan is prepared and sent to the supplier to ensure that they have the right people in place and have the necessary technical equipment. 

  1. The remote audit is conducted based on the risk assessment and the documents obtained from the supplier before the audit. 

  1. An audit report is compiled, and the risk analysis is updated with the results of the audit. An assessment is made of whether a subsequent on-site audit needs to be done when it becomes possible to travel again. 
     

If an on-site audit is considered necessary, it will be done in areas that could not be inspected during the remote audit. This means that this will be a shorter audit focusing on the areas that need further review according to the risk analysis. 

We have several senior auditors who can tailor a solution to suit your needs. If you want help with an audit, please contact us
