Sample Size II

If you ask your registrar what sampling plan they use to determine sample size, you will find them hemmmming and hawwwwing at best. In their opening comments to your group during the meeting before the audit starts, as well as during the exit meeting, every registrar I have ever witnessed has spoken about how they take a sample of your system and (to limit their liability) they will say that just because they did not find something that does not mean there were no nonconformities. None has ever cited a valid sampling plan, much less sample size (valid = based on something other than speculation). I guarantee they will NOT cite ANSI/ASQC Z1.4-1993 or the old standby MIL-STD-105.
