The recent Coronavirus pandemic has emphasized the benefit of being able to work remotely and still accomplish what needs to be done. One response to the Coronavirus pandemic is an increase in remote (electronic) auditing. Remote audits include desk and virtual audits. The benefit of remote audits are that they save time, money and logistical effort. They can also be used when onsite audits are problematic for some reason that is outside of the control of the auditing organization. The concern is that while remote audits can be good at evaluating the structure of a quality management system (QMS), if not designed properly they are prone to miss compliance issues that might indicate that the QMS is not well implemented. This session will discuss the pros and cons of remote auditing as well as, best practices and lessons learned during the COVID-19 era. ***Sponsored by the Audit Division***
