Hey ya'll (gee, can you tell I'm from Bama? ) I just got a copy of an ISO cert newly issued to one my suppliers of raw material (steel) and noted that they claimed (and apparently got) an exclusion from "Validation of Processes for Production and Service Provision". Hmmm.... I gotta' say this is a first for me - I've never seen/heard of anyone even attempting to justify an exclusion from that clause. Have you? And if so, what was the basis for the argument?
