Re: Producing IATF 16949 compliant calibration certificates

You are going to have a real problem here. In general outside calibration labs must be 17025 certified -- so most customer are looking for the cert with that designation to file away and "show the auditor" when it comes up. Simple.

Your customers can have their own independent calibration done.

The second option is it allows an exception if the external lab is acceptable to the customer. So your customer's customer would have to sign off. Probably more likely to get an act thru Congress.

Your "out" is in the second part of 7.1.5.3.2 which says: "Calibration services may be performed by the equipment manufacturer when a qualified laboratory is not available for a given piece of equipment. In such cases the organization shall ensure that the requirements listed in Section 7.1.5.3.1 have been met." 7.1.5.3.1 is the requirements for internal labs -- scope and such. You'll need to figure out how to get yourself into that exception. Good luck.
