What is an internal audit?

An internal audit (also known as a first-party audit) is a process to evaluate your business's internal processes for compliance with corporate policies and strategy. An audit helps identify areas for improvement and supports your goals and strategic decisions. BSI’s internal audit services help organizations maintain quality control, health and safety, comply with regulatory requirements, and demonstrate their commitment to best practices.


Types of internal audits

We can provide a range of types of internal audits across different governance protocols, requirements and standards. Typical audits include a combination of: 

  • Management systems related requirements e.g. a quality management system based on ISO 9001
  • Process evaluation related requirements
  • Customized requirements, including a combination of the above

We can deliver your programme whether it’s pre-set criteria or a combination of requirements you want us to bring together on an ad-hoc or scheduled basis.


Internal audit process

We will work through a systematic approach to evaluate the effectiveness of your management, control and governance processes. The internal audit process is simple. Take a look at the four steps below:

  • Step 1. Documentation Review and Audit Plan assessment Establish your starting point and set the baseline before we scope out the audit programme
  • Step 2. Audit: Our teams deliver the audit programme to our agreed schedule and provide findings via the appropriate audit report
  • Step 3. Review: Regular reviews ensure the programme is performing and delivering results over a one, two, or three-year contract period
  • Step 4. Regular continuous assessment: it’s not just about a one-off audit, a holistic programme will be aligned to your requirements and continuously review performance.
