ISO 9001 Auditing Practices Group (APG)

The ISO 9001 Auditing Practices Group (APG) is an informal group of quality management system (QMS) experts, auditors and practitioners, drawn from the the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and the ISO Technical Committee 176 Quality Management and Quality Assurance (ISO/TC 176).

The APG has prepared a number of papers and presentations on auditing QMSs which are freely available and can be downloaded from the following website link - 

ISO 9001 Auditing Practices Group

The website is primarily aimed at QMS auditors, consultants and quality practitioners.

The ideas, examples and explanations given reflect the process-based approach that is essential for auditing the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 Quality management systems - Requirements.  The papers and presentations that make up the content of the website are not definitive.  They reflect a number of different views in QMS auditing. As such, their content may not always be consistent.  It is not intended that the website's content will be used as specified requirements, an industry benchmark, or as criteria that all QMS auditors, consultants or practitioners have to follow.
Feedback from users as to whether additional guidance documents should be developed, or if these current ones should be revised is welcomed by the APG. Comments on the papers or presentations can be sent to the following email address:
