Are all accepted parks marked with a permanent sign or could the marking be removed? Is the leak test done at low & high pressures? Are there requirements for Moisture/Temperature control on the Pressurized Air/Media? Does the leak test machine identify part as part passed, failed and tested? Confirm that fixtures does not clamp componets in a way that would mask a leakage condition. Is there a control of nonconforming process in place to capture rejected/rolled o-rings and lip seals? Are scrap parts correctly identified and removed from area? Is there a recovery process in place to purge system of suspect parts when internal misbuilds or spills occur? Are all quality charts, and supporting documentation current and up to date? Is the final finished part label printing of the label tied back to the Leak test?

If the question is not applicable then the auditor shall place a check mark in the "N/A" Assessment column.

"Needs Immediate Action" issues shall be addressed prior to the auditor leaving the facility.

If the question is not applicable then the auditor shall place a check mark in the "N/A" Assessment column. If the observed evidence is in compliance to the question then the auditor shall note the evidence in the "Observed Evidence" column and place a check mark in the "Satisfactory" column. If the observed evidence is not in compliance to the question then the auditor shall note the non-compliance evidence in the "Observed Evidence" column and enter into the "Not Satisfactory" column specific actions to address the issue. This information will transfer automatically to the Action Form on the corresponding line number. The auditor shall assign appropriate single point personell and timing to address the issue. When non conforming product is identified during the audit the auditor shall place in the "Needs Immediate Action" column specific actions to address the issue. This information will transfer automatically to the Action form in the same Item No. line. The auditor shall assign appropriate single point personell and timing to address the issue. "Needs Immediate Action" issues shall be addressed prior to the auditor leaving the facility.
