Is internal auditor of ISO 9001:2008 allowed to conduct internal audits in accordance with ISO9001:2015?

If an internal auditor is ISO 9001:2008 trained, has followed only an upgrade course to the ISO9001:2015 standard training (not an ISO9001:2015 internal auditor training). Is the auditor than allowed to conduct internal audits in accordance ISO9001:2015 ?? Exist there IAF or other rules for that?

Each organization has the authority to determine its competency requirements for its internal auditors. Normally, organizations consider that internal auditors should have knowledge of the audit criteria (ISO 9001:2015 in this case) and should have training in internal audits. You can even decide that an auditor has to study a book on audits or attend an online course and do an in-house exam. Internal auditor competence requirements can be established in a job description, for example. IAF and other rules are applicable to certification auditors. So, the only criteria is: does the internal auditor complies with the internal auditor competency requirements?
