During the audit, the auditor gathered, using appropriate sampling, information relating to the audit objectives, scope and criteria, including information relating to the interfaces between functions, activities and processes, and verified it. Only verifiable information constituted audit evidence. Audit evidence leading to audit findings was recorded.

Relevant documentation from the auditee was reviewed in order to:

  • Determine the compliance of the system, based on the available documentation, with the audit criteria, and to
  • Gather the information necessary to support audit activities.

In addition, information related to the audited process was gathered through interviews of the auditees by the auditors.

  • Major Non-Conformity (MNC): A deviation in the system, practices and processes that could result in significant effects that violate the law, patient safety or well-being, or could result in a public health risk or indicates a major deviation from current regulations.
  • Minor Non-Conformity (mNC): A deviation in the system, practices and processes that is not expected to result in an adverse effect on the safety or well-being of patients.
