1. I am an IATF certified internal auditor. I left an IATF certified company and moved to a company that is not. I am considering approaching my former employer and offering to conduct their internal audits for them. Would you know if this can be done with just an Internal audit cert?
I recently completed a variable Gage R&R (per the Control Plans) for the company I work for and it failed badly (October 2018). I was requested to review old Gage R&R data dating back to 2006 and found the same Gage R&R - the 2006 Gage R&R passed. We will be submitting the 2006 Gage R&R to the TS auditor and for the time being - doing "nothing" about 2018 failed Gage R&R - perhaps review in Q2 2019. TS auditor will not be notified of the above. We received a major non-conformance last year for MSA. Does the above violate anything?

Compliance with special characteristics
Hello; I just refer to the clause 126.96.36.199 d) of IATF 16949 that says: compliance with customer-specified definitions and symbols or the organization’s equivalent symbols or notations, as defined in a symbol conversion table. The symbol conversion table shall be submitted to the customer if required. I didn't understand this requirement. Thank you in advance
Temporary change of process controls
I am new to IATF standards and was wondering if you could help me understand the requirements for 188.8.131.52.1. Our current process is all Plex system driven. For example, when a deviation request is approved through Plex, it will rigger QE to review and update the control plan for temporary process control with an expiration date. Once it xpires, the control plan will go back to the normal process. Our process routing also includes approved alternate presses that can be used for a given operation (e.g. stamping, finebalnking, etc.). All products manufactured thru deviation are learly identified as such. Your guidance is greatly appreciated.
