HI Everyone,

I've attached the latest revision of the FCA US IATF 16949 customer specifics.

There were a few changes that I am still researching, such as 7.2.2 computer applications.

The big thing that I noticed was the wording in 9.2.2.3 - the auditor must be employed. Does this mean that we can no longer "outsource" our audits?

The change in question applies only to special-process audits and not internal audits in general, but I'm afraid that the wording is ambiguous. I don't know if
Evaluation of implementation effectiveness shall be based on evidence that the organization has a process in place that includes elements such as:
Qualified auditors identified and employed (7.2.3) (The italicized words were added.)

The document references 7.2.3 (Internal Auditor Competency) of the standard, and the new document indicates that there is no CSR for it.
We don't know if "employed" means "hired" in the sense of a regular company employee, or just "make use of."

Thanks, Jim! I think that we will definitely need more clarification as same could take it means special process audits need to be conducted by a regular company employee.

Worth checking with Fiat-Chrysler direct...but the context of that (very short) sentence reads "Qualified Auditors Identified...and you actually use them." to me...

Perhaps "deployed" or "utilized" would have been better word choices...
