What are the implications of a major NC during a TS surveillance audit? now with the new TS rules... I was told that the organization should notify all customers within 10 days...however, checking the rules, it looks like only if the organization terminated the audit. Could you please clarify?

From experience:

The certificate gets suspended in the IATF database, no communication to customers required (that's what the auditor confirmed) unless any of your customers require such a communication.
But indeed, within 10 days you need to communicate the containment actions (including objective evidence), root cause analysis and corrective action plan to your lead auditor. Implementation of the corrective action plan in 60 days and an on site verification from your auditor within 90 days.

Our 10 days end next Monday...

According to the attachment @ http://elsmar.com/Forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=17785&d=1394826724

10) 8.3 Certificate suspension decision- Major nonconformances require certificate suspension. The CB shall request the client to provide a corrective action plan within a maximum of 20 calendar days of the notice to suspend. Major nonconformances require on-site verification and these visits are considered special audits and shall be entered by the CB in the IATF database. Where corrective actions are not effectively implemented and verified within 90 days, the audit team shall recommend withdrawal of the certificate. Suppliers can expect immediate suspension for major NC?s , and automatic notification to IATF OEMs. On site corrective action for major NC?s is a one time event , and if supplier cannot fully close the NC, the certificate is withdrawn .
