  1. Great stuff,

    A couple of items that may be missing from this discussion..

    If you encounter the nonconformity and then decide to repair, QA will need to verify / validate the repair. This needs to be documented.

    With regards to the corrective action, you should follow the 8D discipline to assure that the corrective action was complete.
