Quality audit in laboratory
You wish to carry out a quality audit in order to evaluate your laboratory?
What is a quality audit?
First of all, a quality audit is an independent and documented process for the objective evaluation of a laboratory’s compliance.
Audits are an essential tool for continuous improvement to verify the proper functioning of the quality management system and processes. In addition, they allow to evaluate their effectiveness in the implementation of the quality policy and objectives of an organization. They also allow to judge the effectiveness of the target performance levels targeted by an organization.
Moreover, a quality audit can have different referentials:
- a standard
- a quality manual
- a specification
- an applicable regulation
Why perform a quality audit in your internal laboratories?
The quality audit has many advantages.
To begin with, it is a mandatory process to be able to apply for several certifications, notably ISO.
Moreover, quality audits allow to detect non-conformities and to launch corrective actions in an organization. Moreover, quality audits are also an opportunity to highlight strengths and good practices.
A quality audit must be conducted by qualified auditors, i.e. auditors trained in quality auditing techniques and able to plan audits, perform field audits, write audit reports and follow up on the resulting actions. Thus, the support of a laboratory specialized in quality audits is an essential step.
