What was discussed-•  Guidelines, standards, and resources for Remote Auditing•The purpose of auditing, includes verifying the conformance of an organization’s processes and management system to defined requirements. It depends on the type of audit and the objective and stated criteria, which can vary. The standard/s which an audit may be conducted could be an organization’s own internal procedures/work instructions, a management system standard such as ISO 9001, AS9100, or International Automotive Task Force (IATF) 16949; ISO 22000, “Food Safety Management Systems (FSMS) customer-specified requirements; or government regulations such as FAA/Nadcap, NRC, etc...• Remote auditing has been a hot topic the last year, given the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, however, remote auditing has been around for over a decade. • Planning is key for understanding the risks to achieve audit objectives based upon the scopes/criteria, and most suitable/available technology, and auditor/auditee complete understanding of the (ICT) Information and Communications Technology platform/s to be used.• Companies, Registrars & Accreditation Organizations are now and must continue to reinvent and adapt for the “new normal” regarding “Remote Auditing” and figure out ways to achieve a balance in assuring Quality Management System conformance versus not auditing at all and maintaining the rigor & respect of a QMS and/or Accreditation program moving forward.• ISO 19011-Annex A.1-option and A.16 for remote and virtual auditing and the ISO/IEC 17021 has recognized remote auditing since 2011. Considerations of the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) Mandatory Documents -MD4 and MD5-2019, Guidance ID3 are available, links included.• There are still limitations to consider, like initial audits and/or for critical processes and highly classified facilities and proprietary processes or problematic non-conforming systems previously audited.• Remote Auditing Practices and Resources *Remote Auditing: A Quick and Easy Guide for Management System Auditors Paperback –2020-Denise RobitailleLinks to relevant sourceshttps://www.iaf.nu/articles/Mandatory_Documents_/38•IAF MD4:2018, ICT is the use of technology for gathering, storing, retrieving, processing, analyzing, and transmitting the information. It includes software and hardware such as smartphones, handheld devices, laptop computers, desktop computers, drones, video cameras, wearable technology, artificial intelligence, etc. The use of ICT may be appropriate for auditing/assessment both locally or remotely. • ISO 9001 Auditing Practices Group Guidance on REMOTE AUDITS, provides for:* BACKGROUND INFORMATION ON ISO 19011:2018 AND IAF MD 4 *GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS FOR REMOTE AUDITING *AUDIT PROGRAM *AUDIT PLANNING *AUDIT REALIZATION *AUDIT CONCLUSION**Annex: Example of identification of Risks and Opportunities for using remote auditing.https://committee.iso.org/files/live/sites/tc176/files/documents/ISO%209001%20Auditing%20Practices%20Group%20docs/Auditing%20General/APG-Remote_Audits.pdf https://committee.iso.org/home/tc176/iso-9001-auditing-practices-group.htmlFollow us on:STS Welding Consultation, LLC-Since 1998 Welding, NDT and Quality Consultation-Training -Expert Witness Since 1998Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/weldndtqualitygurupodcast)
What was discussed:• Consider Industrial Safety & Hygiene News, using figures from OSHA studies, reports that 1 in 250 construction workers will die from a welding injury. With over 1/2 a million American welders working today, we can conservatively expect 2,000 welding fatalities in our lifetime. 31 Jul 2019• In fact, the risks associated w/ workplace operations that include welding, cutting, & brazing result in the deaths of approximately 60 workers each year in the United States alone. This number translates to a risk of greater than four fatal injuries in every thousand workers over their careers.    8 Jan 2019• First and foremost, always consult a qualified and knowledgeable HSE expert and/or CSP • Proper planning with risk assessment= key essential ingredients & for contingencies & understanding the kind of risks prior to any welding & cutting operations. • Welding Training programs may want to consider incorporating  “additional and varied training with mock-ups” for not just welding PPE and Hot Work permitting, but also for proper compressed gas cylinder handling, electrical safety, working in confined spaces, scaffolding & working at heights/fall protection as well. Links to relevant sourceshttps://www.aws.org/standards/page/ansi-z491NFPA, National Fire Protection Agency-Standard for Fire Prevention During Welding, Cutting, and Other Hot Work: This standard presents provisions to prevent injury, loss of life, and loss of property from fire or explosion as a result of hot work projects such as welding, heat-treating, grinding, and similar applications producing or using sparks, flames, or heat. Current Edition: 2019https://www.nfpa.org/codes-and-standards/all-codes-and-standards/list-of-codes-and-standards/detail?code=51BHOT WORK PERMIT-Hot Work Permit is required for any operation involving open flame or producing heat and/or sparks.

What was discussed• ASTM Vol. 03.03, Nondestructive Testing, E 543, “Standard Specification for Agencies Performing Nondestructive Testing” covers minimum requirements for agencies performing the Nondestructive examination. The practice is applicable wherever systematic assessments of the competence of a nondestructive examination agency by a user or other party are desired. The specification states that “the authority (owner, engineer, architect, contractor, purchaser) may, at its discretion, inspect the procedures, equipment, and personnel program of the agency.”  ASTM E1212 and E1359- presents a practice for “Establishment and Maintenance of Quality Control Systems for Nondestructive Testing Agencies.” When using these practices to assess the capability of, or to accredit NDE agencies, ASTM Guide E 1359, “Standard Guide for Evaluating Capabilities of Nondestructive Testing Agencies” can be used. This guide establishes areas for review and provides a survey form that can be used in determining the competence of a nondestructive examination agency as well • The New ASNT Employer-Based Certification Program • An ASNT program that ensures NDT Service Providers and Inspection Agencies meet the minimum compliance with either SNT-TC-1A or CP-189 through the employer’s Written Practice• ASNT (ISQ) Industry Sector Qualification-The purpose of the ISQ program is to provide the oil and gas industry with NDT personnel who have demonstrated competency in the practical application of a specific technique through hands-on performance demonstration qualification examinations.• Links to relevant sourceshttps://www.asianweldingspecialist.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Snyder-Feature-IT-Winter-0auditingNDTagencies-002.pdf  Guidelines for Auditing NDE Agencies https://www.asnt.org/MajorSiteSections/Accreditation/EBC_Program.aspx https://www.asnt.org/MajorSiteSections/About/ASNT_News/2020/ASNT_Launches_New_Accreditation_Program_for_NDT_Companies.aspx https://www.asnt.org/MajorSiteSections/Certification/ISQ.aspx https://www.api.org/products-and-services/individual-certification-programs/certifications/apiqute https://www.api.org/products-and-services/individual-certification-programs/certifications/apiqute#tab-exam-infoWelding-NDT-Quality Guru Podcast Thank you for listening to this episode.  If you like what your hearing, please do leave a comment or rating on the platform you may be listening from.
