In recent years, I have had the opportunity to conduct witness audits in China. Experiencing a new culture and seeing the enthusiasm in adopting and implementing standards was an eye-opener.
Also, I participated in a witness audit of an automotive facility. During this audit, I had a chance to observe the development of the interior design of a driverless car, which was a unique experience.
To ensure it was a successful assessment, SCC worked with interpreters and relied on different information and communications technologies like chat and breakout rooms. It was a great learning experience not only for the customer but for SCC.
