#1
We are a small start-up manufacturer and would like to implement/ become certified ISO 9001:2008 in our processes, I am trying to determine if it is possible to set up and be certified without actually making anything yet- or possibly a provisional certification- any help would be appreciated.

Re: ISO 9001/2008 for small Startup manufacturer

Welcome to The Cove :bigwave:

Unfortunately you need the systems operational for at least 3 months and producing evidence that they are working before you can become certificated.

You can of course develop the systems but until they are implemented and operating there will not be any objective evidence available for the auditor to look at.

Alex:

Welcome. Colin is absolutely correct. Before any credible certificate of registration can be issued, the quality system will need to generate a certain amount of historical data. From this, some management decisions can be made about the status of that quality system, whether it is working towards meeting the goals etc of the customer and organization. It's fairly typical that these things take upwards of 3 months - from experience - to have sufficient 'evidence' to pass a credible audit.

If you have customers breathing down your neck for a certificate, a CB should be able to issue you with a letter of intent. NQA does it under similar circumstances.
