We have an audit schedule defining the scope of the internal audits. I was wondering if an audit agenda / audit plan is required for each of the planned audits?

Thank you

The standard, specifically, doesnt requiere An agenda but requiere planning.
At the planning the audit, you have to notify the auditee the processes to be audited the date/Time, so, to to this, an agenda Is widely used.
Hope this helps

Audit plan is definitely required. ISO/TS16949 asks for an annual audit plan.

On the other hand agenda is optional.
You can include sub-processes to be audited during an audit as an agenda which will help auditors to gain some knowledge about the process in advance and prepare accordingly.
Eg. In Quality Control and assurance process, agenda can be like auditing of Incoming inspection, Layout Inspection, Inprocess Inspection, SPC, MSA. (Details of which activities these process performs i.e. is to be audited)

This is what we do and our internal auditors find it useful, since they now know what is to be audited. And this helps the audit process to work smoothly.

You can define what matters to you most based on your organizational requirement.
