To improve the efficiency of audit planning and reporting processes by certification clients and DQS, we have launched a new system “Audit Manager in recent years. With the DQS Audit Manager, DQS Group offers our customers and auditors worldwide an innovative, web-based audit tool for easy and joint audit processing - from planning and audit preparation to the actual audit and follow-up, e.g. corrective actions management. The implementation of audit planning and reporting in DQS Audit Management is at below: 


Standards available in the Audit Manager 3.1:

  • ISO 9001:2015,
  • ISO 14001:2015
  • ISO 45001:2018,
