Merging two AS9100 Companies: how to manage interim period

#1
Our company was acquired by larger company. They were one of our customers. Both companies are AS9100 (different registrars). Management wants us to combine our ERP systems now but maintain separate QMS until the larger company completes their next audit cycle (January 2022). Our next audit would be June 2022. Normally larger company would issue us a purchase order and we would create an order in our system. In a combined ERP system, larger company would no longer be issuing us purchase orders. The long term goal is to combine both QMS into one. We are currently operating in separate ERP systems and within our separate QMS systems.

Is there a way to handle this interim period in a combined ERP while still maintaining our separate QMS? My thinking is that we need to maintain the Customer-Supplier relationship we had prior to the acquisition and mimic this in the combined ERP to show this relationship and flowdown of requirements. We would need to modify some of our documentation. If discussed beforehand, is the registrar going to balk at this approach? This seems like a precarious approach, but maybe this has been done with mergers before and would be acceptable?

You would be best served by discussing this with whichever registrar you intend to keep.

The short answer is you probably can but there are many issues to be dealt with.

What would some of the bigger issues? Management for my company believes this would be a simple flick of a switch.

Mostly dealing with different corporate cultures. They are not usually changed with the flip of a switch.

For the non company culture issues you would be best served by talking with your registrar.
