A question of Non-conformity specifics - AQAP2120 (The MOD's equivalent to ISO9001)

I am from the United Kingdom.

My ISO9001 & AQAP2120 certified company is currently undergoing a 2nd party audit by a Ministry Of Defence (DQAFF) (Department of Quality Assurance Field Force) Auditor, against AQAP2120 (The MOD's equivalent to ISO9001, but with a few additions).
The Auditor is raising QDR?s (Quality Deficiency Reports) Similar to ISO9001 Non-Conformities.


My hypothetical question to you is this; If we have a specific piece of measuring equipment, or Work Instructions that are used for an Automotive customer like Jaguar Land Rover, or General Motors, and the MOD Auditor discovers that piece of equipment out of calibration, or JLR / GM Work instruction(s) out of date / out of issue, can he raise that as a QDR, or is he only allowed to raise a QDR against things that affect the (his) MOD contract only?
Your help & comments would be appreciated.

Re: A question of Non-conformity specifics

The scope of the audit should have been covered in the early stages of the audit (in a 3[sup]rd[/sup] party audit, would have been during the opening meeting). I would think that, typically, an auditor would stick to the hardware that is representative of the products being procured by the organization they are performing the audit on behalf of, but sometimes, auditors forget the boundaries of the system they are supposed to assess and roam aimlessly through the plant.

If I were you, I would bring this up for discussion, BEFORE the auditor leaves.

The auditor escort guide should remind the auditor if he is auditing something that is outwith of the scope.
