Simply Put,
First party audits are audits you perform on yourself (internal audits)
Second party audits are when a customer audits you.
Third party audits are when an independent organization audits you.

Or

First party == I audit Me for Me

Second Party == I audit You for Me

Third Party == I audit you for Them

First party.
The audit is done by the company to monitor itself and no external certification is given or expected.

If you are not a member of the same organization then most likely you will be a 3rd party conducting a 1st party audit.

However if you are asked to conduct an audit to be used other than as an internal audit, like a registration audit, then you are 3rd party conducting a 3rd party audit.

"Who's on 1st?" "No, Who's on 2nd." Gets confusing fast doesn't it?
