I apologize for reopening this discussion, but after I read all the discussions, I am still uncertain on how to address this sub-clause.
The 9001-2000 std states:
"The Organization shall determine:....
c) statutory and regulatory requirements related to the PRODUCT...)
1- For those who are certified already to 9001-2000, how did your auditors approach this? What proof did they ask for to verify your compliance?
2- We are in the nameplate industry (labels, nameplates etc...), the only regulatory requirements we know of are for UL, CSA and American Gas. Our order takers are not aware of any laws governing the label/nameplates industry. We have industry standards and practices published by SGIA and that is all !!
This requirement creates extreme hardship and expenses (to research all applicable laws and regulations) on small companies like mine.
Any help is much appreciated...Thank you in advance.
