Re: From the date of your audit, how long did it take to get the actual certificate?
Don't forget, the registrar is one of your suppliers. How would you treat a supplier that failed to deliver on time?
Accreditation bodies (RAB in th US) require registrars to define, in their registration process, the time frame to deliver the certificate.
The IATF have taken that one step further and defined a time period which if memory serves, is 6 weeks.
This foot dragging would certainly be of interest to accreditation bodies.
