Who should use an internal auditing checklist

Anyone considering an internal audit can use an internal auditing checklist to improve their results. It can be someone who is an expert in audits or anyone else who needs to evaluate or inspect a particular item to analyze the safety and quality of your products and services, regardless of the size of your company.

Basic aspects of an internal auditing checklist

  1. Analysis of the organizational context - In this first part of the internal auditing checklist, it is recommended to analyse the external and internal factors affecting the company in question and what the main indicators are for measuring performance.

  2. Company's management - In the second section of the internal auditing checklist, the roles and responsibilities of the company's management should be identified.

  3. Planning - The risks and opportunities should then be identified and an analysis made of whether control measures have been taken.

  4. Support - In this section of the internal auditing checklist, you must conclude whether the company provided adequate resources to manage the company's safety and quality standards.

  5. Operations - The objective of this point is to determine whether measures have been put in place to plan, execute and maintain the company's product and service quality management processes.

  6. Performance review - In this section of the internal auditing checklist, you should analyze whether there are performance evaluation protocols that provide measurable and enforceable results.

  7. Opportunities for improvement - The last section of the internal auditing checklist should ask the following question:

    • Does the organization have an automated process for the continuous improvement of business activities?

One of the most important points when performing an internal audit is to have a flexible tool that allows you to modify and adapt each of the sections of your internal auditing checklist to achieve the best possible results.
