AS9100D Exclusions, if Not Excluded Is it Automatically Applicable?

Hi - a clarification question: If the AS9100D Cert exclusions don’t exclude servicing, and the scope doesn’t necessarily include servicing, (can that constitute sufficient evidence that servicing/repair was assessed?) and the supplier is the OEM, is the supplier eligible for servicing, repairing, and overhauling product they manufacture?

Absolutely NOT!!!!!

Eligible? Not sure what you mean. If the scope of certification does not EXPLICITLY mention MRO activities, the safe assumption is that part of the business is NOT in the scope of audits and certification.

Many OEM's have repair stations that are NOT included in the scope of certificates to AS9100, nor separately certified to AS9110.

Ok, thanks for that. So you are referring to FAA Certificated Repair Stations, where the OEMs have a separate cert for that activity? What about Defense OEMs, that are not working on commercial product? They would need explicit mention of MRO-Repair in their AS9100 scope? And, what if the 8.5 service provision is audited & assessed, but not fully mentioned in scope?

It is very simple; if you want evidence that the MRO activities are part of the certified scope, it HAS TO BE explicitly mentioned in the certificate. Many CB's have "assembly-line" approach to their activities and issue certificates with the template of "Design & Manufacturing of....bla bla bla". If you requested the MRO to be in the scope of the certification, the auditor(s) audited it, there should be evidence in the audit agendas, audit plans, audit reports, PEAR’s, processes matrix, etc.....You have to go back to the CB and request them to issue a properly worded certificate.
