Veeva QualityOne Audit Management allows you to manage internal and external audits. You can support internal and supplier audits by performing audit checklists to address requirements, conducting material verification checklists to control hazards, and validating audit program plans against the procedures you initiated. Audit Management helps your organization ensure processes are effective and appropriate.

    • Verification by Material: This Material Verification object type represents the verification of a single material.
    • Verification by Material Category: This Material Verification object type represents the verification of a category and sub-category of a material.

Audit Checklists

You can ensure your audits address the necessary requirements by using an audit checklist. Use audit checklists to conduct internal and supplier audits to help identify audit findings. You can create, edit, and delete audit checklists and automatically create audit findings when completing and submitting a checklist. If configured, you can also perform audit checklists on an Apple iPad and an Android device. See Working with Audit Checklists for more details.

Material Verification Checklists

You can ensure your audits address the necessary requirements for materials by using a material verification checklist. Use material verification checklists to collect internal and supplier responses for all the hazards that need to be controlled for a material. You can create, edit, and delete multiple material verification checklists as part of a single Audit. See Working with Material Verification Checklists for more details.

Audit Program Planning

You can initiate, plan, and approve audit programs for execution for a determined time period using an audit program. Use an audit program to plan your audits and compare the approved plan against what was accomplished by your organization. You can create, edit, and delete audit programs as part of your audit plans. See Working with Audit Programs for more details.
