Is it also planned to have technical experts joining the audits with the DOA Team Leader to have more insight into the industry? We have good experiences with that.
To have Team Members from Certification participating in DOA Audits is the standard case if the volume and kind of design activities permit it. Some DOATLs have certification background and certain expertises in different field. In such a case, an expert may not be necessary in case the DOA performs only Minor Changes. However, with LOI implementation involvement of certification colleagues in DOA Audits will be more important.
