AS9100D Major nonconformity due to recurrence of a NC during a subsequent CB audit.

#1
A certifying body (auditor) would give a major nonconformity when: "the same or similar nonconformity is identified at the same site/location during one audit and the following audit to indicate that the corrective action process is not effective. " [SEE FAQ 9101:2016 / 9101F #17 Clause 4.2.2.5 ]

Question:

If found during an internal audit that the first corrective action resulting from the first NCR was ineffective and an internal corrective action is written with a due date past the consecutive audit, could the external auditor still assign a major finding?

Thanks for the support.

Of course, the external auditor can and must report the repeat occurrence as a major. Having found the issue during an internal audit does not give the organization "immunity" over the categorization of the NC. If that line of thought was allowed to prevail, companies would play even more games, prior to external audits.

Further, your organization should not feel bad about it. Since you had already discovered, during the internal audit, that the previous corrective action was not effective, I am sure you are already working on a solution, isn't it? so, the CB major will only give the organization more focus to put the issue to rest. :naughty:
