What is the validity period of the Certificate for Internal Auditor (for example acc. to ISO/TS 16949)?
And what is behind that (legal basis, any norm requirement)?
I mean how long (how many years) Auditor can carry internal audits?
Thanks for help.

As long as the internal auditors remain competent in what you ask them to do, there is no time limit. Unless you put time limits in an internal auditor (training) procedure.

Only external auditors have time limits before they need to be re-certified.

Thanks for the answer, but how you can "prove it"?

Records of training (either internal or external) and competence. Meaning another more experienced auditor or internal audit team leader can observe the internal auditor at work and record this fact. Competence is demonstrated.

It's that simple.

Yes, that's clear.
But still I'm looking for any records, anywhere confirming this fact...

The problem is the mindset...

So many think if it is not specifically permitted it is prohibited...


I like to think if it is not specifically prohibited it is permitted!
