I ask our QA manager of 10 months why we are not putting flag up of our current 16949 accreditation and he told me then that becomes a controlled document .Also it cost money to purchase this flag .Are these true answers?

The flag is not a controlled document, but your QA Manager is correct in stating it would cost money.

Seriously? He thinks it's a "controlled document?":mg: Oh dear...

It's true that the IATF flag does cost, but isn't that outweighed by the marketing value, to let people know that the organization has achieved that certification (not accreditation, btw)

I suppose that if they wanted it to be a controlled document, they could make it one. It certainly doesn't have to be though. Perhaps it could have periodic calibration and maintenance as well?
