QS 9000 for OEMs

#1
I understand that some OEMs are planning to get registered to QS 9000? Is this possible? Looking at the scope, one does not get the impression that OEMs fall under the category where QS registration is either required or possible.
 
#4
Just a clarification. When I meant OEM in the question, I was refering to Vehicle Manufacturers - Hyundai, Mitsubishi etc.

The B3 aren't vehicle manufacturers?

Hyundai & Mitsubishi require QS-9000?

Quality System.

The entire title of the requirement is Quality System Requirements, QS-9000 Third Edition.

other OEMs (e.g. mitsubishi, hyundai, etc.) may elect to adopt QS9000 as their supplier quality system requirements or may recognize QS9000 registration as also meeting their company-specific supplier quality system requirements. (refer to "Other OEM-Specific Requirements" p.79 of QSR 3rd ed.)

well, if these OEMs fall under "Applicability " of QSR QS9000 3rd ed., they can choose to be registered with QS9000. (just curious. do other vehicle manufacturers supply something to another vehicle manufacturer? is it possible? :] )

Does a passenger car assembly plant come under the applicability clause listed in Page 2 of QS 9000 III Edn.

QUOTE QS 9000 applies to all internal and external supplier sites of a. Production Materials, b. Production or service parts, c. heat treating, painting, plating or other finishing services directly to OEM customers subscribing to this document. UNQUOTE.

Which division of DC is working for QS 9000 registration? Is it a car assembly plant or a division supplying to a Chrysler Car Assembly Plant?

I don't know if any assembly plants are registered, but 'internal' suppliers are. For example, Ford's Sharonville transmission plant is registered to QS-9000 I believe, as is Delphi's operations.

The only companies requiring QS are Ford, GM, and Chrysler. However, they require their tier I's to 'flow down' the requirement for registration to their suppliers. Where it gets interesting is there are a lot of small suplliers (under 20 people) which now have to register.

Mitsubishi, Toyota, Honda, etc. have their own requirements and have nothing to do with QS-9000 (or ISO 9001 for that matter). They neither want nor need QS-9000. Personally I think Nissan sucks real bad, but Honda, Toyota, etc. make pretty darn good cars without QS or ISO. I have a Mazda 626, 1989 model year with a turbo and 274,000 miles on it with no major repairs or motor work. I still drive it around town and it still drives very good. Doesn't even burn any oil!
