ISO 14001 Internal Audit - Opportunity for Improvement

#1
Hi All,

Whilst conducting an ISO 14001:2015 internal audit I have made a few observations/identified opportunities for improvement, however, some of these have already been included as weaknesses/threats in the company's SWOT analysis. Should I still include them in my report or is this unfair? They have made some progress to close out some of the weaknesses/threats but seem to have come to a standstill and have made no progress at all on others.

Many Thanks,

This to me is the more central point: why the standstill/no progress? Perhaps your OFI could be to improve on their follow-through....or, perhaps this lack of follow-through rises to the level of an N/C, especially since it seems to be a pattern and not just an isolated occurrence?
