Process and risk-oriented auditing in a laboratory

Process and risk-oriented auditing in a laboratory

One of the basic principles in quality management is thinking and working from risks and risk management. Many components of a quality management system will find their origin in eliminating or reducing risks. A first requirement for this is to get a good view of the risks in order to be able to manage them. This can be done by performing process- and risk-oriented audits.
This training will teach you to carry out a process- and risk-oriented audit within your own organization in a practical and effective manner. The results of this audit can be translated into measures for risk management and improvement management.
The keywords for the intended result of this module are: objectivity, professionalism, process- and risk-oriented auditing.



This module focuses on audit skills that are necessary to professionally prepare, execute and report a process- and risk-oriented audit. The emphasis is on integrating process thinking and risk thinking into the audit process.
The goal of the module "Process- and risk-oriented auditing in a laboratory" is:
  • To use processes and potential risks as a starting point for conducting an audit
  • To link the outcomes of an audit to process steps, taking into account the reference framework
  • To link the outcomes of an audit to existing and potential risks in the tested process
  • To teach skills to prepare, conduct, and report process- and risk-oriented audits in a structured way.


The module uses exercises to gain more insight into process- and risk-oriented auditing.
