Major Software System Changes - Implementing TS 16949 and ISO 14001

My Company is currently ISO 9001-2008 certified. I am in the process of implementing TS, ISO14001. the company is also looking to consolidate two plants and on top of all that they want to introduce and implement new software that will change (to some level) the way we run the plant floor.
I was told that if I get TS certified and major changes to the system are made, that I would have to have a re-audit.
Where would I find this requirement in the standard?
I am trying to make an argument that we should wait and get TS certified after we consolidate and after we implement the new software.

Thanks

Not necessarily. It depends on the significance of the organizational/system's changes. Your Registrar/Certification Body has particular "rules" for this. Best way to find out, is to contact your Registrar/CB.

As long as the ISO 9001 scope is the same as that for the TS you do not need a separate ISO audit. If the scope is different then the production areas will need to be audited only for ISO 9001. Some CBs will give the ISO 9001 certificate at no extra charge!

When you say consolidate- do you mean physically merge ?
At the moment 2 sites = 2 audits.
I you physically merge 1 site = 1 audit!

The ISO 14001 audit can also be implemented with the TS audit and you should be able to reduce the overall audit days. The ISO 14001 days can be reduced- the TS cannot.

In relation to the software, changes are allowed at all times to your system- This change should not require a recertification audit
