Sampling Plan for Quality Audits

This webinar examines the issues in audit sampling and provides the answers one need to plan audit. It will help attendees understand the use of standard sampling plans in an audit including FDA’s QSIT sampling plans.

Why Should You Attend:

Quality audits typically involve sampling records and other documents. Sampling raises questions for the auditor, such as the number of records to sample and the limit on nonconforming records. There is a fundamental question about nonconforming records. If a record has, say, three errors does the auditor count it three time (once for each error) or one time as a nonconforming record.

Some auditors determine the sample size without using statistical techniques. Sampling records in an audit is not the same as sampling at incoming inspection; the underlying assumptions are different, so the methods need to change.

This webinar provides the information you need to use sampling for quality audits. Participants learn the difference between counting nonconformities and counting nonconformances and which technique to apply in a quality audit. An audit may need to determine the error rate in a process, or least show that it is not too great. Participants learn some standard sampling plans as well as the reason they work. As an example, the presentation explains the FDA sampling plans in the Quality System Inspection Technique (QSIT).

  • Concepts of sampling applied to quality audits
  • Difference between a nonconformance and nonconformities
