We recently had a revisit by our CB to verify the effectiveness of our CAPs for three major NCs. One was closed and the other two were downgraded to minors. Should I just reopen the two that I had closed, or should I create two new ones?

What does your procedure require you to do? Deviate from that and you could possibly be hit with a minor for not following your CA procedure;)

Please confirm - you've stated that one was closed as well as two were closed?

No, he said that 2 of them had been downgraded from Major to Minor, he still has NC's to fix and his solution is to follow his corrective action procedure or possibly risk getting another one for not doing so...Issued one just like that for that reason myself today. The NC's didn't disappear, they just changed level of seriousness

My procedure doesn't address that specific scenario. It allows for reopening closed CAs.

I had closed all three. The auditor only closed one out of the three. So, I have to reopen the other two and recategorize them as minors.

Then follow your procedure if that's what it is. There is nothing that says that you can't

It is always useful to indicate which standard you are certified to. Some rules that apply to AS9100 might differ from TS 16949, ISO 9001, ISO 14001, etc....
