The Intelligent Self-Assessment


How do you measure compliance with standards in your organization? Traditionally, the answer was: internal audits, external audits and certification audits. With the launch of the i-Assessment, we give you a fourth option – one that offers greater flexibility, requires less resources and can be deployed across the globe.

Internal audits require a high level of auditor competence: if you don’t ask the right questions, you won’t get the right answers. ISO standards are often highly technical and difficult to interpret. This is also the limiting factor for most self-assessments: they are written in the same “ISO language”. If you don’t have a common frame of reference, how can you do a meaningful self-assessment?

Our i-Assessment, owned and developed by the DQS Group, is the solution. Built upon thirty years of auditing experience, it translates complex and abstract standards into simple and understandable assessment criteria. What makes our self-assessments truly unique is the auto-generated assessment report, which provides a comprehensive and practical starting point for further improvement.

If you don’t ask the right questions, you won’t get the right answers
