Dear
If u r aquiring some other lab fascilities for testing your products. then the audit scope shud b limited to that product testing. I mean u have to audit Instrument qualification, Instrument log book, Method validation, Reagent and chemiclas quality, Trainig of analyst, log books and analytical records etc etc.
