This guide is intended for use in the concrete construction industry. Recommendations and practices presented are intended to be nonmandatory and only meant as guidance. This document is not intended to offer guidance in initiating a quality management system or to serve as a standard for third-party registration audits.

This guide addresses several disciplines within the concrete construction industry with questions specific to those disciplines. It begins with the principles and objectives of audits, followed by audit protocol, methods, techniques, and competency of auditors. Chapter 7 covers common processes of quality management typical to all industries with an emphasis on their application within the concrete construction industry. Chapters 8 and 9 cover the processes for design and construction. Processes are presented with background information, their impacts on operations, common pitfalls, and sample questions to prompt audit investigations and discussions. For someone not familiar with quality management considerations for a certain discipline within the industry, this guide provides background and a starting point with some of the appropriate questions to ask.

The application of this guide is suited for assembling a list of good practices to use in an audit procedure that is commensurate with the size and complexity of the organization's assigned or proposed task. Its application is also relevant to audits of large organizations with more complex systems and the resources to support them.
