That is not my experience, having supplied 4 Tier I & Tier II automakers...not a lot, but more than one...If you are being audited, you need to have approval from your customers to use non-iso certified suppliers. That much is clear.

With a customer auditor? Sure, you need customer signoff, we got ours from the auditor himself.
With a contract internal auditor...it took a lot of discussion, but it passed.
With a CB auditor for surveillance audits? We had incoming validation of parts purchased, from a non-cert company with no issues from the auditor.
Curiosity...can you reference the "shall" that makes it "clear" to you?
a QMS certified to ISO 9001 is the initial minimal acceptable level of development
