Question Surveillance Audit of 2008 before Transition Audit to ISO 9001:2015

Hello all,

My company is currently certified to ISO 9001:2008, certificate is valid till Sept. 2018 with a surveillance audit due this March.

We worked on implementing ISO 9001:2015 and want to go for a transition audit directly this month but the registrar is saying that they dont have any availability in March and would come and do both Surveillance and Transition in the same week in April.

Now my question is, when I am ready for transition, why do we need to go through a surveillance audit and spend money? Did you guys have the same experience? This seems like an absolute waste of money to me.

Best regards,
