Post Audit Consulting
Consultants by and large provide technical information and guidance to achieve certification to International standards. Success or failure may sometimes depend on the discretion of the 3rd Party Auditor. Often most facilities fail because they were unable to defend their own documentation or their version of interpretation of the standard. Some facilities may not be aware that an appeal process is possible when there is a conflict between the auditor and auditee. This would be the time when post audit consulting would be required for facilities that have just gone through an audit. A consultant who has complete comprehension of the intent of the standard will be able to defend the facility he/she prepared for certification. This process is called the Post Audit appeal process. A consultant reserves the right to appeal to the Management of 3rd Party Auditors to change the decision of the Auditor in the favor of their clients. QSE is adept at providing such a service and help any organization to correct and defend their case or where applicable defend their case without any further corrections and if there are only disputes in interpretation.
Who should Pursue?
- Any facility that does not agree with the Audit findings of the Auditor and wants to appeal
- Any facility that may consider an element of prejudice or bias in the statements or conduct of the Auditor
- Any organization that needs to present their version of interpreting the standard and be heard for redressal
- Appeal may persuade Auditor to change his findings
- A Change in status of findings from Major to Minor depending on the situation
- A chance for the facility to make amends and be treated fairly for certification
- A chance to win an almost lost battle
