Good morning, everyone. I am currently working on a company's QMS and preparing us to go for our ISO Certification. I came across something that I've never encountered before as an auditor, and I'm not sure how I feel about it or if it's acceptable. In the QMS, as written so far, it's written that any measuring device that doesn't have a calibration sticker on it is to be considered reference. In any other facility, those tools that were out of calibration or not calibrated for whatever reason always had a "reference only" sticker on it. My question is is this a valid/acceptable procedure? Thoughts? Frankly, I think it's clever. But also kind of lazy. But hey, if I can get it past an auditor....I suppose. Thanks.
