Beginning a certification audit involves two phases:
Stage 1 is documentation audit and Stage 2 is Primary Audit.
- Phase 1 (DOCUMENTATION AUDIT)- At this stage, the auditor of the certification body verifies the preparedness of the organization for stage 2 audit based on procedures.
- Phase 2 (PRIMARY AUDIT)- This verifies the extent of the fulfilment of the standard requirements.
- CLOSURE OF NON-CONFORMANCES:
After the non-conformances identified by the ISO auditor, you must implement measures to close them.
- ISSUANCE OF CERTIFICATION:
When all non-conformances are closed and all findings are documented in the ISO review report, the concerned body, such as SIS Certifications, will provide you with the required ISO certification.

This is an audit that is performed periodically to ensure that your management system continues to meet the requirements between audits.
