SGS Remote Audits support organizations maintain their certification during the quarantine period
SGS clients are assured that despite the restrictions brought about by the quarantine nationwide, regulatory and compliance audits can commence.
The current COVID-19 global pandemic has indeed altered the business environment. Social distancing in operations, business continuity implementation, tweaked workforce requirements and conducting internal audits are some of the challenges faced by organizations. While preparations are being done to anticipate the required conditions in the workplace for the new normal, organizations need to ensure that day to day operations continue based on standards and regulations. This is where SGS comes in to support its clients in the continuous implementation of its management systems (across various standards).
See below testimonials from some clients who have undergone Remote Audits.
“Our first remote audit experience was good. A script is given in advance so we can send our support documents and the auditor can browse through the documents. Though it was just for 4 hours, we were able to explain and demonstrate our compliance. The remote audit helped our certification be extended for another 6 months.”
Zenaida dela Cruz
Quality Assurance Supervisor
“It’s a normal audit wherein all the detailed items were normally discussed and updated. However, communication skills were challenged since all information was limited only to verbal expression and taking turns to express what was needed to be communicated. Certification was sustained through the efforts of a remote audit which allowed the organization to provide evidence of compliance and sustainability. Also, it’s an effective and safe implemented protocol to perform such an audit without sacrificing the health of both parties.”

“It’s like normal to us since some of our foreign client do remote audit on use. It helps us to get the certification objective even though it is only remote audit. It covers the important topics which covers the certification objectives.”
