In order to achieve our goal of becoming ISO certified in Quality Management Systems (ISO 9001:2015) within the end of July 2020, we recently conducted a weeklong internal training dubbed "ISO Internal Auditors" for all our staff at HQ and the core people in our field offices with responsibilities in project and financial management.
The training was based on the ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 19011:2018.
The internal ECES' ISO Senior Electoral Auditor, Jose Enrique Roman conducted the online training via our WEBEX platform after he had delivered a face to face training in Brussels on the same subject before the COVID 19 crises. All participants subsequently passed a comprehensive exam testing their knowledge on the subject and in order to quality as "Internal ISO Auditors"
Internal Auditors are key actors within any organisations to ensure that all processes related to ECES' Quality Management System comply with requirements established in the Standard Operating Procedures of ECES that have enshrined all the principles and requirements of the ISO 9001:2015 standards for quality management.
In this manner, Internal Audits exercises became a standard continuous practices at ECES that are also used to design and implement improvement actions to be recorded in our Standard Operating Procedures and re-assesed every year by external ISO 9001 auditors. Congratulations to all our new Internal ISO 9001 Auditors.
