... None of the "corrections" affected what we actually do. We just reworded and reworked the control plan to "fix" the offending items.
... All of the "fixes" need to be done to 100 control plans before he shows up again. Otherwise, there's something about ineffective corrective actions and major non-conformances. Seems like a complete waste of time. I would rather update them as they need a substantive change.
Any words of wisdom to tell the guy when he comes back?
Issue a QA System Deviation (or whatever you want to call it) to cover control plans which addresses the required change and commit to changing individual plans to whatever schedule is best for you. In my experience auditors want to see an agreed plan and perhaps updates from time to time to show the plan is on track, not necessarily all completed actions by the time the next visit!! The audit "finding" doesn't affect product conformity so I'd question the hell out of it.
