We've been registered to 9001 since 1998. We are switching to a new registrar and this new registrar says they will need to include all 10 of our non-manufacturing sites (distribution centers) in the sampling plan. This is unprecedented for us. Our prior registrar never required this; traditionally we've only had our 6 manufacturing plants in the scope of our audit and listed on the ISO cert. Was our prior registrar in error to not require that our 10 distribution centers also be included in the scope? Is our new registrar being overly prescriptive?
