Qus : For internal ISO audit (before the external final ISO audit for certificate renewal), how can one ensure that it is effective from all aspects and do we require any specific training or certificates for internal company ISO auditors?

Parag Kumar

It is advisable and in some standards required to get your internal auditors trained in Internal Audit. Quite a number of organizations including certification bodies and others carry out such training programs and provide certificates. You may consider a consultant also to train your internal auditors specific to your management system your organization may choose to issue a certificate to that effect. The training typically includes sensitization to the standard and audit methodology. Customized training at your location may / may not also include sensitization to your own management system (where you can also involve your own people to train) and some practice sessions in your environment.
