Two distinct improvement efforts are required for compliance with the AC291 and ISO 17020 standards:
Part 1) Implement a conforming quality system, and
Part 2) Document Field Inspector work instructions

The AC291 kit enables full compliance with Part 1 (Option A) Quality System.

The easiest method to document Part 2 is to refer to an industry method for each special inspection, or video the procedure then record specification limits in a very short companion work instruction. Or, create a block diagram/process map (flowchart) to describe inspection instructions that includes required limits. Less convenient, using your technical document writer skills, use lengthy prose to describe the procedure.
