Certificate Suspension? Shut down due to Covid-19

Due to our facility remaining shut down due to Covid-19, it looks like we may have to delay our surveillance audit long enough to go into suspension status. Assuming we complete the audit within the second 90 day extension, are there any other risks or requirements for our company while in suspension status. I'm working from home and don't have access to the rules to completely understand this.

#1 Risk...and everyone misses it...Not MAINTAINING your system. Very low hanging fruit
Thanks Randy. Our case is an inability to maintain our system. We've been shut down and working from home since March 20th, and are tentatively scheduled to return on June 29th. Our original audit was scheduled for March 30th, and our 90 day extension expires on July 4th. Upon returning to work to new safety protocols and equipment that has been shut down for >3 months it will take us a few weeks to be properly prepared for an audit, and more importantly to be prepared to receive any potential benefits the audit may provide.

Marc is right in that all these conversations should start with your registrar.

IAF and the Accrediting Bodies have been revisiting and revising the old rules for months because of this virus. You are in very good company. Please contact your CB Customer Representative with your unique circumstances as soon as possible. This week. Tomorrow, if you can.

As Marc and Jen said, talk to your contact at your registrar.

Our IATF 16949 audit was due mid May this year, after explaining our situation to our contact our audit has moved to the middle of November. They will help you out.
