The responsibility of the quality assurance auditor is to periodically test and assess quality control systems to ensure that a company's practices conform to both internal and external standards. A quality assurance manager may work within a company as part of its internal quality control team. Quality assurance auditors may also work as independent contractors for third-party auditing firms. The individual duties are much the same in either instance, though internal quality assurance auditors may also take on other tasks relevant to the quality control process, such as inspecting or sorting.
