Who is REQUIRED to be an appraiser in MSA?



During a QS-9000 audit, would it be considered a non-conformity if GR&R's are conducted without appraisers who normally use the gage? The MSA says SHOULD, page 39, item 3.

Also, what if I cannot show that the parts selected for the study are not "selected from the process and represent its entire operating range"?

Anyone have experience with auditors/registrars concerning these details?


Fully vaccinated are you?
As I understand the requirement for Gage R&R, both of these are required. If you do not do the 'should', you better have a very good explaination of why your alturnative methodology is appropriate and how it meets the 'intent'.
