#1 - Get the company to pay for some training. Even if it's webinars or videos you can purchase and watch. Check out the ASQ's offerings to start:
http://www.asq.org/knowledge-center/iso-9001/index.html

#2 - Learn how to audit as well as how to implement.

#3 - don't be afraid to come here to ask questions and share your experience.

Let me help you before you go too far...

If you have had (effective) training, the preparation of a checklist should have been covered in the course materials. If you haven't had training and you can't show competency in performing audits, you risk not getting much value out of your audit. I'm sorry to say that searching here for a checklist isn't going to do you much good, either.

If you are looking for a form to fill out with your own process information, that's a different matter, but expecting a checklist for your processes probably won't be found anywhere on the internet.
Thank You to AndyN for your informative Post and/or Attachment!

I agree with Andy N. A checklist or turtle chart, without training on when or how to use it is useless.

A process audit checklist is usually developed by the auditor SPECIFIC TO THE PROCESS. Other than that, ANYTHING you find will be less than effective for your audits.

Re: Internal ISO 9001 Audit

Wow thanks guys,
To be honest i have had quite a bit of training but every time i try to implement something , i get shot down or there isnt a support structure in place.

The last training i went to was conducted by Dr. Paul Andre , president of AQE and that was the Lead Auditor .

Its like my brain is bursting with ideas, but a scott said , dont be afarid to implement.

I treat an audit like a shopping trip. I make a list (based on the process) of the things I want from the store. I put the list together so that I get what I want as I progress through the store. There are aisles I don't need to go into (pet foods, for example, I don't have pets) because it's not relevant. I pick up basics each time - milk, bread etc. These are the document/record controls etc. supporting any process.

Just like any grocery shopping trip, not all meals are the same. Each step along the way, you dig into the process, based on past performance, repeat problems, just as you spend a bit more time checking fruit etc. than cornflakes.

I've found this to work pretty well.
