accounting dept. role in QS


Bill Harris

Can anybody tell me what element(s) apply to an accounting department's role in QS? Are Level II or III documentation necessary? Thanks for the help.


Accounting is not an element in QS-9000. It is one of the very few areas where you are free!!! (Although I'm suprised). Human Resources is not an element either.

It might not be "an element", but can be linked to "elements." What about contract review...does accounting provide any data? Human Resource...personnel...provide training? Accounting may be responsible for forms that generate shipping paperwork? So its all in the organization. ISO doesn't tell who or how, but what. Generally accounting doesn't have much to do, but I don't believe it can be answered Y or N. As all auditors learn....IT DEPENDS...
