EV AV Standards What to Audit?
One of the key purposes of an integrated management system is to act as a preventive tool. Prevention, coupled with risk-based thinking, enables the organization to determine the factors that could cause its business management system and its processes to deviate from the planned results. Once those factors are determined, the firm can place preventive controls to minimize negative effects and make maximum use of opportunities as they arise. Auditing integrated business management systems must remain a priority for every organization.
