We are currently ISO9001 registered and have recently purchased a plant that has no certification. It was determined that the new plant would need AS9100 registration/ certification due to their customer base. I modified my QMS (which has been audited 100+ times from 2nd/ 3rd party)to incorporate the clauses for AS9100 in bold italics, and when I submitted it for review, the person reviewing it said that I should address all clauses and sub clauses in the manual. I have designed my QMS on using the manual as a driving document, an overview. The procedures and work instructions are inputs, (where all clauses are defined and addressed), and appropriate parameter sheets and quality records (outputs) Should I move forward and submit it for the stage one, or do I need to address every sub-clause in the manual. Your collective feedback is greatly appreciated.
