So it's Monday morning and a big week lies ahead. This week one of my key clients will seek certification to ISO9001:2015 and it's a big challenge for them and me! As an Auditor myself people often assume that an audit presents no challenge to me and that I don't worry about them - well that couldn't be further from the truth and I have butterflies in my tummy already and the audit isn't until Wednesday. But then I put my rational head on and think about how well prepared we are, how much we've done to get to this stage and I know that we are as well prepared as we possibly can be, we've got tomorrow as a final check day, and all we can do is 'get on with it' and see whether our interpretation of the requirements of ISO9001:2015 is the same as the auditor's and discuss our differences to come to an understanding we both accept. And today? Well today I'm off to deliver a 3rd party audit - thankfully against ISO9001:2008.
