Have been receiving several go and no go gauges back from calibration that are out of calibration by virtue of having grown. Last audit, the auditor randomly picked a gauge that had failed the last calibration. Well, I had replaced the offending member but had not documented any further action.
It is my belief that as a quality engineer, I should be able to make a judgement as to whether an audit of product bought off by this gauge is warranted. Thread gauges are used in IQA and to verify that correct inserts are installed in molded product.

I'd say you're quite right to say that as a quality engineer you can make the decision about product bought off before the gauge was replaced. What reasonable auditors are usually looking for is some documented evidence that you went through that thought process. This could be as simple as a one liner attached to the calibration report saying something like "Consideration given to previous product, "growth" of gauge only represents X% of process tolerance and would not result in out of spec product being released -therefore no action taken on past production"
