TS16949 Control regulation with business partner(Subcontractor)




We are going for TS16949 certification.
Regarding above mentioned thread title, presently we don't have any sub contractors or any outsourced jobs. But we may have in future.

Can we exclude this clause.

or we should mention the control over sub contractors in manual as suppose if we add them in future.

Hi Mohammed

The only clause you can exclude is Product design - See Section 1.2. All the other parts of ISO TS apply. You can not get an exclusion for any other section.

I suggest you treat sub contractors exactly like other direct material or component suppliers. See primarily and 7.4.3.
