Hi guys

Is it a laid-down requirement of AS9100 that, to carry out a supplier audit, the auditor has to be externally accredited as a Lead Auditor?

The guy in my team that’s down to be doing our supplier audit programme has no such qualifications and I’m getting push-back from my senior management to send him on a course costing around a thousand GBP!

I’ve always understood formal qualifications to be a requirement – but “I’ve always understood” doesn’t quite cut it!

Cheers,
Gaz

Gaz - it's important that the person is competent to do supplier audits. That doesn't necessarily mean being a Lead Auditor, so you define what their competencies are, and if the guy comes up short, then you have a reason to send him to some kind of class! Be careful though, if management don't want to spend the money, they may not agree that he must possess those competencies. Depends what they perceive to be the value from the supplier audits. Been there, done that...:notme:

Thanks Andy. Funny how anecdotes, rumour and innuendo can become 'fact' if left unchallenged long enough, eh!

"Custom & Practice" it used to be called! lol!!
