How does an RBA audit work?
In the first step, we would like to learn about your company, your activities and expectations. On this basis, you will promptly receive a detailed and transparent offer, tailored to your individual needs.
You fill out an online questionnaire, the so-called Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ). With the information from the SAQ, the auditing team can work with you to finalize the audit plan.
A VAP audit of an individual manufacturing facility typically takes 2 to 5 days, depending on the size of the company, and includes a thorough document review, discussions with management and employees, and a detailed site visit. In a final discussion, your DQS auditor will provide you with a detailed presentation of the results and possible improvement potential for your company.
If non-conformities are identified during the audit, they are classified as minor, major or priority, depending on their severity. Deadlines are set for the three categories, within which you must implement corrective and preventive actions to prevent recurrence. Once the corrective actions have been implemented, they are approved by the audit team.
The findings of your audit will result in a detailed report for the RBA database. There you can provide your clientele with insight into the audit results and thus demonstrably meet your clientele's requirements.
