CQI Thames Valley - the changing face of management systems audit
Thu 23 March 2017, 19:30 – 21:00 GMT
The March event of the CQI Thames Valley Branch will look at the changing face of management systems audit. This session will be led by Richard Green of KCS Ltd.
At the beginning of 2017 changes were made to two key auditor standards - ISO 17021-3, which details the requirements for certification body QMS auditors; and ISO 19011, which provides guidance on auditing management systems.
These changes will impact all those who implement, manage and audit quality managment systems.
Come along prepared for a unique insight to the development of these standards, and a lively debate about the implications for the quality and certification body industries!
Light refreshments will be available from 19:15 hrs so please come along to meet and network with your peers.
