Additional evidences of competence

I have read in other resources that Certification auditors will actually look for something beyond just training records as evidence of competence. We are developing Qualification Evaluation sheets that departments will complete for each team member. These should be updated yearly and of course there will be continuous training. Should this suffice for the IATF competency requirements?

Answer:

The standard does not prescribe what kind of evidence of competence the organization will provide, it can be training record, diplomas, certificates, CVs and any other record that demonstrates that the employee is competent to perform certain activity.

The only novelty in the new standard is that the organization will need to provide documented evidence of the trainer's competency to perform internal audit training, but other than that there are no changes in requirements for competency.
