Certificate Scope Change - Remote Location(s)


David J Quality

Hi everyone!

Our TS 16949 certificate references, in the scope, activities performed by a remote location are longer being performed. How do I change the scope to remove this activity from the RL?



Hello David!:bigwave:

I moved your post to this forum. Hopefully it will help it get better exposure. Let me or another moderator know if there is any issue! :agree1:

With a pencil. :)

Contact your registrar. In my experience they usually they do a scope review at each audit.


Trusted Information Resource
Manufacturing site has to determine supporting functions performed by remote sites and document it.

Remote site has to be audited and scope of audit has to include supporting functions performed for manufacturing site. Remote site always has to be audited before manufacturing site. You have to be careful what you put in your scope of remote supporting functions, as your scope has to comply with scope of supporting functions audited at remote site.

There is no problem if scope of your remote site lists 5 functions and your scope lists 4, because meanwhile you had started to perform 1 function by yourself, as long remaining 4 supporting functions are same. Opposite situation - your scope lists 5 functions and scope of audited at remote site functions list 4 functions will result in issuing nonconformity.
