One of our customers is stating that traceability and flow down of requirements is not required when purchasing raw material. The flow down that is not being required (by our customer) is record retention, customer approved special processors, control of suppliers. Our customer wants to issue an Authorization To Proceed (ATP) for us to buy material without requirements of any kind. The contract with requirements will be issued at a later date. Does AS9100 provide for this loose directive to purchase without any controls?
