AS9100C "Split" Audit Stages

Good afternoon,

Is there a requirement saying that audit days for an AS9100 Audit (a stage 2 audit for example) have to follow each other ?

For example, for a 4 manday audit can it be done as follows :
* 1 day on Thursday this week and
* 3 days - Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, next week ?

Thank you very much,

Magali

Hello,

Our surveillance audits require 4 mandays and we split them up into two 2 day audits each year. Our auditor is local so we don't incur any addition cost (travel, ect.). So with that said I would believe that there is no requirement for consecutive days for an audit.

Hope that helps.

Nothing in the standard that prevent the auditor to select multiple different (not consecutive days). Talk to your registrar and express you desire and work with them / auditor.

Can you give us an idea of why you would want this? I can tell you that it's going to be disruptive for the auditor. It may even cost you more, depending where the auditor has to travel from, due to travel costs.

The audit may not be as effective due to the 4 day delay. Some audit trails, established on the first day, may not be able to be concluded the next week.

As a result you may not get an effective audit and the auditor may not be able to feel confident and make a recommendation for certification. That may cost you more with a re-audit (partial) later - with more travel costs.

If schedule is a problem, or availability of management, then I suggest you reschedule or make sure management are there to show their commitment... If this was a major customer coming in to do the audit, would they spread it over these days? Unlikely!
