Managing Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) Compliance with Rapid Audit

The implementation of standard operating procedures and operating checklists in manufacturing ensure that the operations are consistent across multiple sites every time. SOPs define and document how tasks must be completed. Effective execution of audits provides you with the ability to demonstrate compliance with operational or regulatory requirements.

Switching to Electronic SOPs

Many industries are highly-regulated and most answer to multiple regulatory bodies for different areas of compliance and risk management. When the SOPs and SOP checklists are still paper based, keeping track of all the audit tasks is challenging. Switching from paper-based to digital SOPs is now possible. With a cloud-based audit solution, digital SOP checklists can be accessed from anywhere as long as there’s internet connection, everything is stored on a single platform. It ensures that the current SOP is the one available to employees, and that procedure audits are conducted frequently and on schedule.

Audit reports are can be generated real-time in the system to provide data for comprehensive analysis, highlight the non-compliances or areas for corrective action. Rapid Audit can even audit your audit processes.

  • Increased Visibility: Managers, auditors and inspectors can get a real-time view of information in the form of summary and detailed reports showing the risk profile, enabling users to drill down data for analysis. It also shows the audit campaigns and tasks that are active and finished.
  • Higher Efficiency:  With an automated system, SOPs are kept in a centralized repository enabling a secure and easier access. SOPs and other items are readily available during inspection and audits.
