I posted on another similar thread to @NachJo that we handle our CAR verification in the following way…
After we close a CAR the effectiveness is reviewed at our next Management Team meeting. We have handled this by using the Resolutions. So our options here are
- Action Items Assigned - Waiting for Completion
- Closed - all action items completed
- Effectiveness Verified by Management.
It allows us to filter out all of the Corrective Actions in each category. You can add the details in the Resolution Comments as to when the check (verification) was completed, who verified it, etc. You can have both fields displayed up as columns when you search so you can show your auditor that you are tracking that stage of the process and the details of the check. We just finished our Recertification Audit and we were able to show proof that we completed our effectiveness check using this method.
