What is the ASQ recommended time frame between an auditee receiving a final audit plan and the audit commencing at the auditee’s site?


From Charlie Cianfrani:

ASQ does not have a recommendation!

From George Hummel:

This is not an ASQ requirement.  A CB generally sends an audit schedule/plan three weeks before the audit.

From Jim Werner:

Typically, the final audit plan has been agreed to by both the auditor and the auditee and it includes the date(s) the audit is to take place. This means that the audit plan includes the audit schedule in one document.  There are many books written, with examples, on this topic.  The ASQ Audit Division is a good source.
