LENGTH: 60 Minutes
Auditors know it may not be practical to examine all available evidence due to its volume and dispersal. In those cases, a sample is selected to evaluate against the audit criteria and form the audit conclusion.
The risk is that the sample may not be representative of the total set of people, documents, practices, and records being assessed. As a result, the audit conclusion may be different than if the auditor had examined the whole population.
We may over-audit by taking samples that are too large and waste time and resources. Or, we may under-audit by taking samples that are too small and end up not detecting nonconformities.
The following topics will be discussed in the webinar to help improve your audit sampling, and thereby, your audit results.
- Sampling Definition
- ISO 19011:2011 Audit Guidance
- Sampling Steps
- Sampling Methods
- Statistical Sampling (systematic, random, stratified, and cluster)
- Sampling Plan
- Confidence Level
- Sample Sizes
- Judgment-based Sampling
- Convenience Sampling
- Sampling Concerns
- Sampling Risks
- Sample Selection
- Evidence Types
- Record Sampling
- Sampling Disclaimer
It's important we apply the appropriate use of sampling since it is closely related to the confidence that can be placed on the audit conclusion.
A four-page paper titled, “Audit Quick Reference” will be available as a handout.
