Can we reschedule an ISO audit?
A reader recently asked, “We got certified last year in April. Does our audit this year have to be in April, or can we have it a few months before or after?”
The short answer is yes, you can reschedule your ISO audit. However, try to schedule your annual audit for as close to April (or your anniversary month) as you can. There is some flexibility but you have to work with your Registrar to make sure you schedule it right. The annual ISO audit is too important to risk missing – if you don’t follow your registrar’s rules for audits, you could lose your certificate!
