Benefits of auditing

Auditing is a tool for developing the organisation

Auditing is a tool firstly for the management of a company or organisation. Through auditing, the status of the organisation’s management system and operations are evaluated by an outside expert. The auditor brings their own experience and support to the management which can be used when deciding on actions and improvements.

Through auditing and eventual certification of their operations, companies and organizations show their customers and interest groups that:

• the organisation's integrated management system meets the requirements of international standards

• continuous development and improvement are an essential part of the company's operations

Auditing and eventual certification is a proof of quality and a desire to develop the company's operations. This is why it can offer a significant competitive edge. In many branches, an integrated management system and its certification are a prerequisite when a customer selects its suppliers and partners.
