Thank you Ronen,

That is what I would have thought but its great to get a second opinion. Both components would match our specification but there would likely be different coatings and there would be other proprietary information we would not have access to. I haven't been able to find any regs that address supplier change but it certainly seems like the prudent route. If you know of any please let me know. Otherwise Thanks again!!

IMHO your main focus should not be the supplier change. If the coatings differ and/or you don't have access to a detailed specification (I mean the manufacturer's, not yours) then you'd have to treat this as a significant design change and handle it accordingly, as prescribed by part 820.

Regardless of that, regulations applicable to supplier changes are listed under part 820.50 (Purchasing Controls) and are definitely applicable when it comes to a critical component. If you were merely moving to purchase an identical item from a new supplier, you might have done with just that; but I understand that this is not the case.
