Hi, our IATF 16949 surveillance audit is this week and our leadership team has requested that I ask our certification body to postpone the audit or see if the non-manufacturing portions of the audit can be done remotely. This is because (1) our company is now prohibiting any non-essential suppliers or contractors from visiting our facility and (2) limiting face-to-face meetings and limiting the number of people together in one meeting room. It will be interesting to see how this all develops.

It sounds like a reasonable request. Some employers have travel restrictions in place now, which might prevent your auditor from visiting anyway.

I'm sure this thread will grow, and was curious as to how this would play out. Our 16949 and 45001 audits are in the fall, so hopefully it will be business as usual. If they are next week however... We are currently only taking visitors in emergency situations, and require approval from the company president,

It's possible this will affect all our external audit schedules for some time to come - external auditors will be playing catch up for some time once things return to "normal".

Is it any more dangerous to have an auditor come in than having a customer visit? Are the companies wanting to postpone audits also forbidding customer visits? Looks like some are, some aren't.
