Freelance auditor

Scroll down for more information.


As freelance auditor I can execute both internal and external audits on your behalf, my specialties are supplier audits and detailed assessments of facilities, services and quality systems.

Purchasing equipment, software or services brings a series of risks to regulated, pharmaceutical companies. I can help manage that risk by executing an audit of the supplier or by performing an assessment of the product your company wishes to purchase.

  • Supplier audits allow for a complete evaluation of the supplier organisation, quality system, technical capability and key practices. A typical supplier can be audited in only two working days, with little preparation time thanks to the Corelas audit toolbox.
  • An internal audit of your facility, service or quality system by an external consultant can identify issues which would remain undiscovered when relying just on internal auditors. I can manage audits at your company in all discretion, in different fields of expertise.

Efficient supplier audits with Corelas audit toolbox

I have developed a supplier audit toolbox which includes a standard audit questionnaire. The following chart summarizes my supplier audit approach as a freelance auditor.

Corelas audit process

I can manage the above audit process completely on your behalf, and perform the on-site audit using an in-house developed questionnaire. Of course the audit approach can be adapted to your expectations, or can be performed following your organisation's own approach to supplier audits.
