Independent monitoring of quality systems
During recent reviews of organisations it has been noted that functions carried out by the Quality Department/Team have not been subject to independent auditing from someone not involved in the function. This leads to a Non-Compliance against the monitoring / auditing of the organisation as not all aspects have been audited correctly.
Please ensure that all functions within the organisation are independently monitored by a person not carrying out the function.
Please see the guidance on the EASA website for Part 145 and note that this applies to all approval types;
Please also see the EASA guidance on continuing airworthiness for further information;
