Welcome back Selena. I am not sure if you are becoming a CB auditor or if you are an internal auditor.

Either way, I see no reason you cant be an observer on an audit of your company. You will not be doing the audit.

Good luck on becoming an auditor. :agree1:

Thanks Dave
when i got my training in BVQS i got the diploma which said that i succed in the course of auditing the ISO 9001
and which notifi to me that i have to get 3 audits to become internal auditor and later with another training i can become senior auditor
and as you said, i canno't become CB auditor and i'm just in the first step to become internal auditor
but this is good if i can be observant even the audit concern my nature activity
thanks lot :D

Hi Selena

I wouldn't see it as a problem but am going on Internal Auditor training next tuesday so will raise it as a question.:D

It wouldnt surprise me if there were some with the train of thought that would prefer observing an independent audit, however I don't see it being much of an issue myself, unless the training body that advised you of that requirement has specified otherwise. It may be a case that the training body I go to may advise differently to others, but if you can wait a week I will get what information I can from them.
