Expired Materials (threadlocker) Audit Finding Classification?



During a recent internal audit, bottles of expired threadlocker were found in use in a production area by the auditor, and written up as a finding under Verification of Purchased Product. Would this be the appropriate clause, or would Control of Non-Conforming Product be more applicable?

Re: Expired Materials Finding Classification?

Are we talking about ISO 9001 or another standard? In ISO 9001:2008 I would say 7.5.5 Preservation of Product. They are not preserving conformity of the product if they apply expired materials to the threads.

7.4.3 Verification of Purchased Product would imply that the product came in from the supplier already expired, which is probably not the case.
