Environmental Auditing Management ISO System
Environmental Aspects are the building blocks of your EMS, providing the latest Environmental Risk Management System ISO19011:2011
ISO 19011 is the standard that sets forth guidelines for auditing management systems. The standard contains guidance on managing an audit program, the principles of auditing, and the evaluation of individuals responsible for managing the audit programs. An audit program consists of the arrangements made to complete all of the individual audits needed to achieve a specific purpose.
ISO 19011:2011 provides valuable information on how to improve an audit program systematically, just as other departments in an organisation are expected to improve. One aspect of such improvement is continuously ensuring the audit program objectives are in line with the management system policies and objectives. Organisations, in pushing for auditing improvements, should consider the needs of customers and other interested parties.
An area of increasing importance in auditing management systems and business, in general, is the concept of risk. As of the 2011 edition, risk has been integrated throughout the audit program management section of the ISO 19011:2011 standard.
Who can use ISO 19011:2011?
If your organization conducts internal or external audits of management systems, or if you manage an audit
the program, then ISO 19011 and the ANS version apply to you.
Anyone involved in audits or audit programs can use ISO 19011. More specifically, ISO 19011 is for people
in charge of managing an audit program and evaluating individuals involved in the audit programs and audits.
Anyone who has been tasked with improving an audit program will find ISO 19011:2011 of value.
