I was "lurking" at the Elsmar Cove forum and I noted a comment that an auditor made, regarding calibration and asking operators what they know about the status of the gauges they use. Surely, this is the wrong questions isn't it? It's obvious that ISO 9001 hasn't a "shall" which says anything about this, so an auditor shouldn't be asking such a question. Wouldn't it be better to ask management if they know how valid measurement results are obtained? Or another way of looking at it is that when a cop pulls you over for speeding, do they ask you if your speedometer is calibrated?
