Confused about the TS 16949 Deadline

Hi Everyone,

I've been lurking for a month now and have found all your contributions most helpful!

I was wondering if anyone else finds themselves in our situation.
We are a Tier 2 supplier (50 employees) and several of our customers are asking us to to registered by year's end (presumably a Big 3 mandate); however we find ourselves in somewhat of a bind.

We made application for ISO/TS 16949:2002 in April of 2002 with a major registrar and were assigned an auditor. We were told he was fully qualified only to be notified in July that no one is currently through the TS16949 training and will not be until mid to late September. Our auditor has also indicated that he will need to free up time in his schedule to attempt to audit us by year's end in the mandatory 90 day time frame from desk audit to final registratin audit.

Our dilemma is whether to go for a less than ideal audit and meet our customers' requirements or wait until the auditor is trained and can devote his full attention to the audit process.

Has there been any consideration to extending the deadline for registration to the ISO/TS 16949:2002 for those suppliers who have not been previously registered to any other standard such as QS9000.
