Prepare the audit team for a Process-Based Audit and the MDSAP Audit Sequence.

Internal Audit Team

Your internal audit team is the key to a successful MDSAP audit. They must be able to conduct process-based audits to prepare the organization to meet MDSAP requirements and practice for a successful audit.

MDSAP Audit Model

Also be sure to train or brief those with responsibility for the QMS at your organization on the MDSAP audit model, the audit sequence and process-based auditing. The purpose of this briefing is to secure support to train your organization’s internal auditors.

Formal Training

In addition, note that it may be necessary to have a formal training for internal auditors as the checklist and areas of the new internal audit for MDSAP may differ significantly from the previous internal audit process.
