Product Audit - It must be a separate and distinct activity (IATF 16949)

The recent release of FAQs and SIs for IATF 16949 along with training for our CBs auditing staff forces me to take another look at Product Audits. For the last 15 years or so, I've always been able to demonstrate through various audits that the intent of product auditing was met. My CB says otherwise now - it must be a separate and distinct activity from all other audits and inspections. So I am looking at Customer Specific Requirements. FCA refers me to PF-8500 and Product Assurance Testing manual. For the life of me, I cannot locate these. Searches on the FCA portal come up blank. I'll gladly fork over the fee if I could just see where to obtain these...

Hi,

Yes Product Audit is a separate requirement wherein you need to audit the product at all appropriate stages of Production(From Raw material to semi-finished goods to Finished goods.As far as fiat CSR is concerned you need to check your AQ approval documents which are used for any product approval.This is basically your product approval form.Further this could exist in other forms as well like agreement of ispection etc.

I appreciate the input, Singhars, but I probably did not make clear that it is the referenced documents that I am trying to locate.

Hi.
Would someone share a sample format for product auditing?
and, if possible, one of process auditing.

In my case, we have a process of stamping and welding by electrodes.
And in my opinion I think the checklist we use is not entirely efficient, we lost the course some time ago ..:deadhorse:

I appreciate your help
