Detailed Analysis

Key Observations

  • The internal quality audit program lacks sufficient detail regarding the specific areas and quality systems to be audited, leading to potential gaps in quality oversight.

Possible Root Cause :

  • Lack of detailed planning in the internal audit schedule.
  • Insufficient definition of audit scope and frequency.
  • Inadequate coverage of all necessary quality systems within the audit program.

Corrective Action:

  • Revise the internal audit procedure to clearly define areas and quality systems to be audited.
  • Implement a more detailed audit schedule that ensures all necessary quality systems are covered within a two-year cycle.
  • Train quality audit personnel on the revised procedures and schedules.

Preventive Action

  • Develop a protocol for regular review and update of audit procedures to adapt to changes in regulatory requirements and organizational processes.
  • Institute a protocol for auditing the audit process itself to ensure continuous improvement.
  • Enhance audit training programs to cover strategic planning and scope definition.
