Remote oversight such as audits and assessments became the go-to mechanism for ensuring conformance to requirements during the pandemic when in person on-site activities were restricted. Performing remote oversight throughout the pandemic period has provided an opportunity to learn through hands on experience and apply lessons learned to improve the process in the conformity assessment industry as whole. While remote audits and assessments can be used, it is important to understand the risks associated with such activities and most importantly that remote oversight is not necessarily suited for all situations. In situations where it is suitable, it is through the appropriate use of technology that organizations, auditors, and assessors can effectively prepare for and execute a remote activity. Knowing what to expect and how to mitigate risk at each step is crucial in preparing and conducting remote audits or an assessments.

Join us for this webinar where we will discuss the lessons learned from two years of remote assessments, how to identify risks related to remote activities, and understand how to prepare for remote audits and assessments, both from the organization’s perspective and from the perspective of the auditor or assessor.
