serve four main purposes:
- To determine whether the system in place is being implemented exactly
as intended ie. are all procedures and work instruction being followed as
they are documented ?
- To identify any problem within the system and determine how the system
allowed it to occur, how the problem can be resolved and how to improve
the system so that the problem will not recur.
- To identify areas within the system which can be improved.
- To determine whether the QMS meets the specified requirements which
are critical to the organisation ie. relevant standards, regulations,
It is also an excellent opportunity to determine if the appropriate
resources are available to carried out required tasks.
