​ The objective of certification bodies should be to calibrate their auditors.


If you have an auditor who is a bully, report them to your certification body.  Abort the audit if they are disruptive and not adding value. 


Our objective when auditing is to look at what you are doing right.  You had all of the questions that might be asked before the audit started.  If you don't have the answer, then it is most likely that the auditor hasn't understood, yet, what you are saying.  Again, you had the questions before the audit began.  You answered all of the questions, right?


If you did not meet the requirement, a nonconformity should be written.  If you are having resource issues with getting to your suppliers or getting audits done internally, email us.  We'll be glad to help you out, even if it is a temporary assignment.


Email us  if you want to know more."
