Meeting of great minds facilitates exchange of great experiences which in turn facilitates a breakthrough in learning. It is with this philosophy that drives the team of DQS Certification (M) Sdn. Bhd. to come together annually for our auditor exchange, a much looked forward to event since our establishment in 2005.

For 2019, DQS Certification (M) Sdn. Bhd.’s annual auditor exchange was held at WORQ Co-working Space at UOA Business Park – Subang, Malaysia on the 17th to 18th of April 2019.

Some of the topics during the event which invokes multiple constructive debate and discussion from the participants covers area related to performing alternative audit methods, allocation of audit duration, interpretation of statutory and regulatory requirements, consideration of agile quality management, key performance indicator reviews and DQS reporting expectation.

                     “Burning” discussion, debating, presentation, questioning and listening….and finally an official conclusion…

A second more specific session for DQS Certification (M) Sdn. Bhd.’s IATF 16949 automotive auditors was held on the 23rd of May 2019.  Automotive auditors from Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam, with an average experience of more than a decade for the automotive standard gathered in DQS Certification (M) Sdn.

Facilitated by Mr. E.S. Lau, the Senior General Manager of DQS Certification (M) Sdn. Bhd. who attended the international session in Frankfurt back in January 2019, the participants, each with their own sets of extensive experience, discussed on topics and worked on case studies. Case studies were debated with different point of view presented by the respective participants. A long day of exchange ended with a fresh perspective for some of them and validates the understanding for the others. It was a successful event providing a constructive platform for all to participate in the lifelong learning cycle.

                     Just like cars are being electrified for the future, automotive auditors must invest in knowledge for the future too…
