Re: Helping Top Management Prepare for an Audit

We have an 11 multi-site ISO 14001 certificate and one of our sites is having an internal EMS audit conducted by a third party auditor.

I want to create a ppt for some of the managers / directors that may not be as involved in the EMS. General summary of ISO and what their role is as Top Management.

Here's the deal, if you have to teach them what their role was supposed to be, then they aren't as involved as maybe they should be and any auditor worth his salt will pick up on that smoke being blown in his face

I mean look at it anyway, what is Top Management really supposed to do?

Establish a policy (4.2)
Provide resources (4.4.1)
Define and document roles, responsibilities, etc.... (4.4.1)
Appoint a MR (4.4.1)
Review system performance and finally, (4.6)
Make appropriate decisions about changes, policy and all that other stuff (4.6)

Don't overburden and confuse people with a bunch of fluff. Top Management is like everyone else, they only need to know what they need to know
