Dear All

What is looked for during a ISO 9000 : 2000 Stage 1 audit (Pre-Adequacy Audit) for a University?

In my reading, I learnt that the Registrars only look at the documentation and internal adequacy audits. But, the registrar looked for "Internal Compliance Audits" and made a big - hoo-hah threatening to give a Major Non-conformance.

Is this a common practice?

Thanks

An pre-assessment has to cover all of the shalls. If an internal audit has not been performed where else will corrective/preventive actions come from? There are some minimum requirements that need to be met prior to the full out audit.

I am wondering if you read my post correctly? I did say internal audit was done. Corrective action was also taken as a result. Audits were done to ensure system was in place.

The assesssor for the registrar wanted to see that "compliance audits had been done".

I think you need to be more clear. The pre-assessment is intended to determine if your facility is ready for registration. The Registrar auditor should be reviewing an entire process (from RFQ to Delivery). Keep in mind, however, that not all areas can be reviewed. Typically one "job" is followed through in order to confirm that the "shalls" are not only met but that they have "added-value" repercussions. Just having a pre-assessment is no garentee.

If your registrar auditor wants more than an effective Internal audit, you should be advised to ask that person where the requirement IS that makes it mandatory.

OK, I'll answer directly

Question #1....Nothing different than what is looked for anywhere elsewhere...Have all basic/minimum steps to meet requirements been put into place? Being a university doesn't make one special.

Question #2...You betcha!
