Complete Company Restructuring & Impact on ISO 9001 Certification

Q

We had number of departments certified for ISO 9001 in our organization and recently there was a complete restructuring which has affected all departments.

Due to the restructuring, the department names & scopes were changed. Now most of the departments are having new name and a scope which is partially certified.

Though all employees have adapted the new structure & redesigned some processes however the final approval on this new structure is still not obtained.

Do we need to inform our certifying body regarding this change?

What is the best way to retain the certifications & regularize the situation?

Your contract with your certifying most likely will include a clause that requires you to inform them of a significant change. The changes to the organizational structure as described can be considered as a significant change. Contact the CB.

Believe me, you want to notify them before they show up for an audit, or one of your customers notifies your certification body.

Things can turn ugly if they think you are trying to hide something.

The only clause available is that we have to inform the CB in writing of any changes that may occur to our circumstances that are likely to affect the compliance of the management system to the standard used for the certification.

Exactly! That's it...

Yes to informing the CB and perhaps demonstrating a proactive approach on your organization's part by doing a gap analysis to see if there are any areas that require some special attention.

I think you wait too much you were supposed to inform CB earlier on, since you started restructuring including proposed structure and updating through the whole process. dont waste time my friend, thats is big change in your processes.
