 Here is a free template for things that you should include in an auditing opening meeting.

  • Introduce your team
  • State the reasons for the audit
  • State the standard that you are auditing against
  • Check if the programme is still OK
  • Check who is available for the audit
  • Confirm any logistics (rooms, lunch, guides, etc.)
  • Remind auditees that the audit is confidential
  • Check that any documents sent to you before the audit are still current
  • State that you are only looking at a sample of the system
  • Confirm how you will communicate findings during the audit
  • Confirm time, location and attendees for the closing meeting
  • Allow any questions

I hope that this is of use when auditing.  If you need any auditor training – please visit our web-site for details of our IRCA registered Pharmaceutical GMP Auditor/ Lead Auditor training course Previous feedback is below.
