We are a rather small company (± 40 employees) conduction conversion activities for FORD. We are not a mainstream supplier. We are currently ISO9001 certified sinde december 1993 but we want to be QS 9000 by the end of this year. We have a discussion with our registar about the number of mandays for upgrade to QS 9000. They say it have to be 5 mandays, but to my opinion this is to much since we are already ISO9001. Can someone help me with this?

Appendix H of QS9000 states for a 40 person company 5 auditor days for initial audit. Note #4 specifies that the table does not address "upgrades from ISO-9001 to QS9000."

I would suggest further conversation. Ask what they are basing the 5-days on. If its the table, point out note number 4. Should open the door for negotiation at least.

Laura is right, if your ISO audits have gone well the registrar can justify using less than the required number of days. I would definatly discuss this with your registrar.

Is it so that there is a difference in audit mandays if you are ISO 9001 before or after 1996? Our registar says the reason why we need 5 mandays is that we are certified before 1996.

I cannot specifically say it is an accommodation of the Standards, however, BSI (my registrar) will knock a 1.5 days off (100+ personnel) if the auditors who originally certified you to ISO9001 where qualified at the time of that audit to do QS9000 audits. What bearing that has on today, I have no clue, but it is something to evaluate.
