Q&A - Auditors

The Contact Us function at the top of every page on the website are the preferred means for asking questions and receiving answers from the subject matter experts of the TIA QuEST Forum. Over the last few years many questions have been answered through this means. The number of each question is the ticket number in the Contact Us tracking system.

These questions generally relate to issues of interest to or about auditors.

Question 12870 — Is the re-qualification day based on the day the examination is passed? For example, if an auditor has passed a mandatory delta training class in October 2021, is their re-qualification due in October 2024?

Answer —  No. Timing of requalification is not based on when training is completed but on when the CB performs its re-qualification of the auditor as a TL Auditor, Lead Auditor or TIEA every three years, per the TL 9000 Auditor Qualifications document located on the website.

Question 13084 — I need to find out my current status as a certified TL 9000 auditor.

Answer — You need to contact your Certification Body. The TIA QuEST Forum does not directly certify auditors or keep any records about certified auditors. Auditors are certified by Certification Bodies accredited by authorized Accreditation Bodies.
