The Biomedical Quality Auditor Handbook was developed by the ASQ Biomedical Division in support of its mission to promote the awareness and use of quality principles, concepts, and technologies in the biomedical community. This third edition correlates to the 2013 exam Body of Knowledge (BoK) and reference list for ASQ’s Certified Biomedical Auditor program. It includes updates and corrections to errors and omissions in the second edition. Most notably it has been re-organized to align more closely with the BoK.
