When there is a 2 year lapse in production, is a full FAI required?

When there is a 2 year lapse in production, is a full FAI required? If the customer drawing has not changed, and there has been no change in process or tooling, can a Delta FAI be issued stating that no characteristics were impacted by the lapse?

Yes, if the requirement is AS9102.

The underlying reason for the two year rule is the concern that a series of small changes over time could add up to a significant change.

Keep in mind in AS9012, two years is measured from the end of production to the start of the next batch. If you have a long production process you may be able to gain a week to several weeks additional time before the FAI trigger.

The two year requirement only applies to AS9102 or if otherwise specified by the customer.

ISO9001 and AS9100 do not have a two year requirement (My company is certified.) And from what I have heard on elsmar and elsewhere, I don't believe it is a IATF-16949 or ISO13485 requirement either.
