My corrupt/horrible auditor requested we write our policies to his standards and number them for ease of his audit. I was like, f that noise, you're ISO 9001; I didn't take his suggestion seriously.
I've heard auditors love it when you number SOPs according to their code, but...like...
Don't most certifying bodies know a lot more about all of the codes than any one? Can't they ask me where the requirement they want is met? I go to the trouble of preaudit checklists with standards and hyper links to all my documents. If we are safely handling food, I don't see why a superficial number should have to correlate, or even specific language.
Also, I don't want to have a set of documents for every audit I go through. I want one set. One beautiful, shiny, color coded, bound and logo'ed set.
Do I have to change my numbers?
