Taking on a job outside of our ISO Scope

#1
We are a small R & D company which is considering taking on a job outside of our ISO 9001 certification scope. Our scope states that we only produce prototypes. The job consists of receiving product from another company, testing the product and returning the product to the company. I expect this to be a one time contract. How does ISO 9001 handle taking in jobs outside of the scope?

Please take it up.
Please execute.
If that one time contract is a success and you expect more, consider mapping it into your ISO scope and later consider ISO 9001 certificate scope expansion.
Business first.
ISO does not handle anything for you. Map your new business process into your ISO 9001 QMS, establish records, internal audit, have your management review it and later think scope expansion as you discuss with your CB...

"ISO" doesn't care! Now, if your customer is expecting you to follow your ISO 9001 certified QMS, and may even have selected you BECAUSE you are certified, then it might be best to ensure you point that out...

Otherwise, nothing says you HAVE to do anything according to ISO...

mdoremus,

Of course you'll use your normal processes for acquiring this work, planning this work and billing for this work.

Your recruiting, training and monitoring processes will result in the necessary competence.

That leaves the plan resulting in the necessary materials, facilities and equipment to complete the work to the full satisfaction of the client.

The fact that this work is outside the defined scope of your certification should not stop you from developing, using and improving your management system to deliver quality assurance to all involved.
