When writing non-conformances, you are meant to identify and record the evidence that you saw to justify the non-conformity. While this is correct, it does have a tendency to drive the wrong behavior in that the evidence that you record is all that gets fixed.

Why would you want to be an auditor?
What on earth possesses people to be an auditor? Why would you want to be seen as boring and dull? You sit there with your glasses perched on the end of your nose reading through reams and reams of paper, trying to find the one little bit that’s not quite as it should be, just so you can catch them out. The only time you see an auditor smile is when they find somebody has done something wrong.
Well, if that is your perception of being an auditor you’ve got it all wrong. It’s a great job.
