Hello all, I am new to the Quality world as of last year and found this site very helpful in the past so I thought id come back now that I have some experience and questions. We have grown a lot and I fear the old way we have does not work well nor is it efficient. Question 1. Signatures In addition to the document owner and the approved by sections we have a "trainee" section for each procedure who signs off on each respected procedure. This means, we have 20 "floor guys" (30 in another location) singing off on each procedures they are held accountable for. Is this normal to gather signatures? Is there another way to go about this and still show they have read and agreed to those procedures? Question 2 : Internal Auditors We have opened up another location across the country and I would like someone in that facility to do internal audits. What training and/or certificates does he need to be able to do this? The standards says we need show evidence that the auditor is competent but says nothing about certificates etc etc.
