Internal Audit in Construction Company

What is an audit?

According to ISO 9000:2005, the Fundamentals and Vocabulary standard, an audit is:
“A systematic, independent, and documented process, for obtaining audit evidence and evaluating it objectively to determine the extent to which audit criteria are fulfilled.”
In other words, making sure that what is going on in practice is in line with policies, processes, and procedures.

Audits should be carried out to look for areas for improvement and best practice. They should not be adversarial or confrontational. Internal audits should be formal, planned, and organized. They are conducted in an impartial and objective manner following an agreed scope and procedures. Audits are used to gather facts and determine the degree to which requirements are being met.

Furthermore in ISO 9001:2015 requirement for an audit was stated particularly in Section 9.2 Internal Audit Clause 9.2.1 The organization shall conduct internal audits at planned intervals to provide information on whether the quality management system:
a) conforms to:
1) the organization’s own requirements for its quality management system;
2) the requirements of this International Standard;
b) is effectively implemented and maintained.

Types of audit

There are three types of audits:
First-party, second-party, and third-party. First-party audits are internal audits while second and third-party audits are external audits.
Organizations use first-party audits to audit themselves. First party audits are used to provide input for management review and for other internal purposes. They’re also used to declare that an organization meets specified requirements (this is called a self-declaration).
Second party audits are external audits. They’re usually done by customers or by others on their behalf. However, they can also be done by regulators or any other external party that has an interest in an organization. Third party audits are external audits as well. However, they’re performed by independent organizations such as registrars (certification bodies) or regulators.
ISO also distinguishes between horizontal audits and vertical audits. When all departments are audited against one element of ISO 9001:2015 standard, it’s called a horizontal audit; and when one department is audited against all elements of  ISO 9001:2015 standard it’s called a vertical audit.

Presented here is an example of the first-party internal audit being conducted in Construction company.
