Quite Involved in Discussions
Hello again. I am stumped on another 3rd party audit finding. We were recently told that 188.8.131.52 applies to our new stamping operation (our company has no previous experience in this area). The only "testing" we will be doing is standard dimensional measurement using digital calipers, micrometers, height gage/dial indicator. I was not aware this could be considered an internal lab because this is an end of production line inspection. We have the equipment calibrated by 17025 companies, or calibration is traceable to 17025 standards. We have instructions and procedures for internal calibration in place. Is our auditor correct or is this leaning toward opinion based on the definition in 3.1.4?
