Follow-up audit A product, process, or system audit may have findings that require correction and corrective action.

Since most corrective actions cannot be performed at the time of the audit, the audit program manager may require a follow-up audit to verify that corrections were made and corrective actions were taken.

Due to the high cost of a single-purpose follow-up audit, it is normally combined with the next scheduled audit of the area.


Third-party audits for system certification should be performed by organizations that have been evaluated and accredited by an established accreditation board, such as the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB).

Preventive action is action taken to eliminate the causes of a potential nonconformity, defect, or other undesirable situation in order to prevent occurrence (proactive). ASQ cannot answer questions related to financial audits.
