Hi, our main site does the manufacturing. Our customers are Tier I suppliers. We recently started using one of our warehouses to store and ship a very small volume of a product to the one of our Tier I customers. Are we obligated to add this warehouse to our IATF cert with a scope of “Distribution.”? If ”Yes” then what if our customer waives the requirement for the Warehouse to be IATF Certified? I figure it’s better to ask here than ask our CB $$$$. Thanks!

I believe that the IATF Rules state that the warehousing and distribution center would be deemed a support site and has to be AUDITED (not certified) to the applicable requirements. In the IATF Scheme only manufacturing sites can be certified.
