10/09/2019 8:39PM  Kevin Kirker  For 11.6, I would request clarification on the timing requirement being defined for notifying client on an appropriate reduction of available CB scope... How was (10) calendar days arrived at?   
10/09/2019 8:41PM  Kevin Kirker  For an 'Information Visit', can we appropriately revise 'typically prior to CB's application...' to only '...prior to CB's application' as I would assume if you were a currently accredited CB that this type of AB/CB visit would not apply and only a special visit would appropriate based on perceived/actual nonconformances with affected accreditation requirements.   
10/09/2019 8:45PM  Kevin Kirker  In regards to 3.1, I would request ANAB shall approve any 'assessors in training' prior to the assessment with the CB. This is not appropriate to simply suggest for any given audit, the CBs shall accept without an opportunity to approve 'assessors in training'.
