Accreditation Checklists for Dummies (How to complete them effectively)!

What do I do with this checklist?

Checklists are a useful tool for completing audits and assessments. Checklists can be internally designed by organizations or provided by an accreditation body. They can work as a “one stop shop” for requirements, as well as objective evidence and comments on conformance to requirements. However, checklists can also sometimes work as “check the box” exercises, limiting audit trails or further discussions about related requirements. That is why it is important to understand how to complete checklists effectively. Thorough completion of a checklist can prepare an organization for an external assessment, highlight opportunities for improvement, and serve as part of the record of internal audits.

This webinar will discuss best practices when completing checklists. The focus will be on the ISO/IEC 17025:2017 standard, but the concepts and tips can be applied to any type of requirements checklist.
