Eventbrite - Effective Audit Preparation by Guy Robinson

Effective Audit Preparation

Audits are a necessary and recurring part of any calibration, test, or manufacturing facility operation.  Often, however, facilities do not have an organized process for audit preparation.  By preparing for an audit in a logical and organized manner, the audit will run more smoothly and efficiently. This presentation will provide an organized and concise structure for audit preparation. Examples will be presented of how to prepare and present the most professional view of a facility.
