Allowing our IATF to Expire Due to Relocation. Any Backlash?

#1
Let me explain our situation.

Our Site FL location is merging with our sister plant Site AV located about ten miles from us. This is a business decision impacted by everything 2020 threw at us, and then some. Our Site AV plant is not under the same certifying body as site FL, but they do hold a current and valid IATF certificate.

Our current site FL certificate is valid through 1 November 2021. Our timeline for relocating to the AV facility is by the end of September, 2021. Our re certification audit for site FL is due Spring 2021.

We are currently evaluating what is our best decision. Is there any chain of reaction that starts if we decided NOT to have our Spring 2021 audit? If we meet our suspense dates and relocate before the certificate expires, is there anything negative associated with doing this?

And what happens if we don’t meet our suspense date and are still actively producing and shipping out of our FL plant with an expired certificate.

Rather than concern about what happens with an expired certificate, a good plan might be to maintain the certificate. Follow your spring audit schedule, especially since you are unsure if you will meet the plant moving target date. I think your customers would be favorable to keeping the audit schedule. They will already be on the watch because of the plant move.

Would it be possible to list the Florida site as an extended site of the AV facility? Checkout page 67 in the rules book..
We have 4 facilities in our town and all fall under the single manufacturing sites with extended sites.
