We have to have a written request from an automotive customer requiring us to certify

Hi.

I went to a seminar yesterday where the differences between QS9000 and TS16949 were presented. The seminar was given by a BSI auditor.

He claims that we cannot simply want to be certified to TS16949. We have to have a written request from an automotive customer asking us to become certified. This letter has to accompany the RFQ to the registrar for them to even send me a quote. I asked him where this was written, and he told me to look on the IAOB.org site. I did and found nothing.

Is this true. If so, can you point me where this is written.

Thanks,

P.S. BSI is not our registrar. I have left a message with our registrar but have yet to receive an response.

A written request is not a requirement of the IAOB. It can be a requirement of the CB. Depends on who you contact. We did not submit such a letter to our CB.
Refer to annex 1 of the certification scheme for directions to apply for TS2 certification.
