Upgrade scope of registration to include support site required?
Any ideas on what it would entail to change the status of a support site? HQ's has the site certificate and the scope includes mfr, west coast site has support cert and scope includes, sales & warehouse mainly.
Here is the situation...
Our east coast plant is HQ and the west coast site is considered a supporting site with no manufacturing operations. The plan is to bring up one operation at the west coast site (prior to 16949 status it was another manufacturing facility & was ISO 9001 & QS, we've since let those certs lapse). So now they will more or less be a manufacturing support process (basically taking product from a reel, irradiating it and putting it back on a reel).
Can we still call them a support site, since they really aren't making anything?
