Since the start of the Covid-19 Pandemic, AMETEK PDS has participated in both remote AS9100 Recertification and Surveillance audits. These were performed by different registrars and at different sites. This presentation will highlight the challenges both the auditees and auditors encountered during these audits. We at AMETEK PDS are taking these lessons learned to use as we move forward with remote audits of our supplier base, to optimize the information we obtain. Attendees of this presentation will hopefully gain some useful perspective for any potential remote audits they may encounter or perform.
