All,

My organisation is currently reorganising our audit resource. As such we plan on using some auditors who have not performed an audit since their intitial training (all traning carried out by SMMT IF).

My question is for internal auditors, do you guys apply any lifetime to TS16949 Internal Audit qualification ? I was just wondering what your organisations do in terms of Internal Auditor Qualifications.

Thanks:thanx:

Aha - can't get away from us can you?:lol:

I'd suggest that you do some competency evaluations first. I. for example haven't done an audit for quite a few months (lost in sales now...) but I could pick up a pen and a pad and go and do one right now.....

You should set up some criteria and do an evaluation. That'll help you to decide if they 'get it' still......

Re: TS16949 Recertification training

We require our auditors to perform at least on audit per year to remain active. If they are on leave or unable to participate we have a few options for them to return to an active status. They can take a mini refresher course that covers our business processes, or take an online course with a scored test. Either way the auditors must review any of the business changes, customer requirements, and/or process updates. Depending on the length of time between audits participating as an observer has been beneficial.

All auditors attended a two day internal auditor class or a five day lead assessor class and must successfully passed the final test.

This year we now have the auditees rate the auditors using a 1 to 5 scale for both internal and external audits. I hope to be able to measure the effectiveness of the program. Hope this helps.

Re: TS16949 Recertification training

Hi Andrewg,
In our end, with regard to Internal Auditor Qualifications. We classify them as lead Auditor and Auditors. As Lead Auditors, our procedure defines them as a personnel that has completed the Internal Auditor Training and certified as Internal Auditor by a Certifying Body. While Auditors are personnel who are competent to conduct audit. Internal Auditors has three functional competencies namely: Job Knowledge, Quality System Knowldege and Problem Solving Skills. There are three levels for Internal Auditors. Level 1 - able to prepare Internal Auditor Checklist, acted as auditee during 3rd party audits; familiar with organization's processes and interpretation of Control Plans; and able to contain and correct the problem. Level 2 - has initiated several process improvements on Audit reports, acted as escorts during 3rd party audits; has initiated improvement in the Organization's Quality System. Level 3 - able to use Turtle Diagrams during internal audit. Has effectively audited all clauses of the Standard. Able to anticipate potential and existing problems.
Hope this helps.
Best regards,
Raffy:cool:

Thanks all,

Think I will just get them to carry out an audit, reflect that its a training audit on the scedule then assess the quality of the audit. Any with issues, will then be sent for retraining.

Thanks for your input.
