ISO 19011:2018 • In-Person Workshop

Transitioning to ISO 19011:2018 with Emphasis on the Automotive Industry Perspective

This one-day transition training workshop highlights key changes between the previous ISO 19011:2011 version of the standard and the current ISO 19011:2018 version. It applies automotive industry-specific auditing approaches while layering in the concept of risk-based thinking. The course will not cover the clauses of ISO 19011:2018 that did not significantly change, but will address critical changes you’ll need to understand to make the transition.
