Course Description

Certification bodies often complain that when it comes to audit-time determination, IAF Mandatory Documents are prescriptive and make determining audit time too complicated. This course was developed to help demystify the content of IAF MD 1, Mandatory Document for the Audit and Certification of a Management System Operated by a Multi-site Organization. It will also demonstrate how IAF MD 1 should be used in combination with IAF MD 5 and IAF MD 11, and help commercial and technical staff understand that the documents allow flexibility to consider each potential client on a case-by-case basis. Case studies are used to help participants understand how to use IAF MD 1 in determining determine credible audit times.
