ISO 9001 Internal Auditor qualifications

As I understood, there aren't any straight standard requirements to get an internal audit certificate for conducting the audit. Does it mean the Certification body cannot raise any NCR during certification if the company internal audit was conducted via non-qualified auditors?

Any organization has to use qualified auditors. Perhaps what is generating some confusion is: each organization has to determine what are its qualification requirements for internal auditors, and each organization has the authority to determine what is its competence requirements. Then, during the certification audit, organizations have to evidence that their auditors comply with the requirements.
