In the supply chain given below,
C supplies to B,
B supplies to A,
A supplies to Big Three,

where C is my subcontractor
B is my organization and
A , my customer
Then can I consider myself the OEM for my subcontractor? And will an audit conducted by me as per latest ISO9000 version meet the requirement of C9 of sanctioned interpretation dated July 1,2001.If not, what is the definition for OEM with regard to QS9000?

OEM = GM, Ford or DC

C9 also states "accredited certification body", which I interpret to be RAB.

Andrews, you may have a point worth consideration by the QS9000 sanctioned interpretations group.

Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) is not just DC/Ford/GM. Refer to page 79 of the QSR for others. I can find no definition of who is and who is not an OEM in the QSR or the interpretations.

WE design, manufacture and sell automotive accessory products to the general public, and we also sell the same product to DC/Ford/GM; all within the guidelines of QS9000.
And we are also the OEM.
