THE Fiji Ships Heavy Industries Ltd facilitated an in-house workshop on internal auditing for ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Systems on Friday last week.

Thirty-five internal auditors from four different companies attended the workshop which was conducted by Gamini Weerasinghe and Mala Thennakoon of Sri Lanka Standards Institution and internal auditors for FSHIL, Fiji Ports Corporation Ltd (FPCL), Fiji Ports Terminal Ltd and CJ Patel Group of Companies.

The ISO 9001:2015 is a standardisation or criterion for a quality management system and is based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement.

"Internal audit is crucial for enhancement of good public or private sector governance," said FPCL chief financial officer Roshan Abeyesundere, who opened the workshop.

"By providing independent objective assessments of whether public resources are economically, efficiently and effectively used to achieve the set objective, internal auditors assist their organisations to achieve accountability and integrity, improve operations, and instil confidence among citizens and other stakeholders," he said.

Mr Abeyesundere said, the responsibilities of internal auditors were increasing from the traditional view of financial audit to risk management issues, performance and compliance issues.

"Therefore, internal auditors need to equip themselves with new skills for them to cope with these changing situations."
