Talking about roles for people, what do you call a person who is in charge of checking or verifying that every part of a procedure is working okay?

I was thinking "reviewer" but it does not sound quite correct to me.

  • auditor? inspector? – SovereignSun Nov 16 '17 at 6:06
  • organizer maybe? – Maryam Nov 16 '17 at 6:15
  • The terminology may vary from what they are checking. Is there a context for this? Perhaps you're looking for a person who checks something in specific? – Varun Nair Nov 16 '17 at 6:24
  • I would use "auditor". – user3169 Nov 16 '17 at 6:28
  • @VarunNair Say there is a "operator" who is performing a procedure (for example feeding tablets to a machine) and there is another person who verifies if that procedure is done correctly – KansaiRobot Nov 16 '17 at 6:42

Have you heard of the word supervisor? I think that's exactly what you're looking for: a supervisor is a person who supervises activities or people, especially workers or students.


Corrector, an old name for proofreader.

Script girl, now called continuity supervisor.

Consultant would fit the bill in many contexts.

In space flight they are called flight controllers.
