2nd BBMRI.at-internal QM cross audit – Auditee: MedUni Wien Biobank
2nd BBMRI.at-internal QM cross audit performed at – Auditee: MedUni Wien Biobank
MedUni Wien Biobank successfully completed a quality management audit by peers from Graz, the VetMedUni Vienna and
BBMRI-ERIC based on the international QM standard ISO 9001 chapters on management and resource processes.
The biobank's audit was the second in the current cross-audit programme of the Austrian biobanking infrastructure BBMRI.at (work package 3 "Quality Management", see also "1st BBMRI.at cross audit").
These checklist-guided audits are based on the quality management standard ISO 9001 and provide both subject-specific consulting for the auditee and insight into established structures for auditors of "younger" biobanks. For this, a detailed audit report, elaborating the strengths and opportunities for improvement of the audited institution is compiled after each audit and disclosed to the BBMRI.at consortium partners. This can be considered as a strong signal of mutual trust and a powerful commitment to a joint improvement of the biobanking community.
The cross-audit program will be continued in 2018 with visits and the audits of VetBiobank (VetMedUni Vienna) and MUI Biobank (Medical University of Innsbruck).
