Hello all, I recently took a new position as QA Manager at a company with a solid SQF Plan already in place. As part of familiarizing myself with the company protocols (and to check compliance against SQF Ed 9) I am conducting internal audits against the code. I know that I should be independent of the areas I am auditing, but at this point, I have been here a very brief time and I am basically a fresh set of eyes on our programs. My question is this - would I be able to consider my first 3 months as still being somewhat independent of my own areas? At this point, I am really auditing my predecessor's work (though I am responsible for any corrective actions.). I plan to audit my own areas regardless (just for my own knowledge/comfort level) but should I schedule a coworker outside of my department to re-audit "My" areas?
