Are you having problems with Internal Audit?
As you will be aware, internal auditing is a mandatory requirement of ISO 14001. Whilst it is common practice to use an internal staff team to undertake ISO 14001 audits, the pressures of delivering a full internal audit programme with staff who have day to day operational roles can lead to delays in your audit programme and competency issues with report findings and standards. This is where The Internal Audit Service can help.
