Per IATF 16949, 7.2.3, internal auditors need to execute a minimum number of audits per year, as defined by the organization. We have some internal audits who did not perform any audits last year. Now it seems we are in a paradox. Do they have to start all over and get retrained and certified? If they perform an audit now, will it be valid, since they do not currently meet the requirement? Is there a more efficient way to re-qualify the auditors, rather than going all the way back to square one?
