Just want to report that we had our first day of the QS 9000 TE registration audit. So far- no minors and no majors!

Tomorrow may be another story but... . We are using NSF and I am very happy with them.

Till tomorrow... .

Congratulations on your first day of success. Our registration audit is next week, and I really don't think we are going to do that well on one major point - R&M. I just don't believe we have had enough time to get everything together before the audit but, oh well.

Again congratulations.

We passed! After corective action on 6 minors we will be recommended for QS 9000 TE.

It was a more exhaustive audit than at my previous company, a much better "snapshot".

Thanks Tom G for the registrar reference. They were indeed complete and fair and added value to our quality system.

Also thanks to Marc and everyone on this forum. It is an excellent resource from which I was able to get needed information which was simply not available anywhere else.

Now for that wine that was delivered to my company today... .

Congrats on your company's effort and results. I've enjoyed following your posting on the project. I would really appreciate a listing on the nature of the registrar's findings.

Although we are going for iso 9001, We will evolve oput system to satisfying the TE requirements. We interviewed Mr. Carter and NSF and I was favorably impressed (and out voted for a famous mark).

This is a summary of the problems our auditor found, all legitimate but not serious enough to warrant panic.


CAR # Description

R1 Design plan needs to show milestones for design review meetings. 4.4.6


R2 Must show evidence that our vendors have reviewed government regulations and safety concerns.4.6.1.2


R3 Approved vendor list must include outside calibration sources 4.6.2.c


R4 Vendor surveys do not fully address development of the vendor to QS 9000 TE 4.6.2.1


R5 No evidence of procedures for handling and protecting of calibration equipment 4.10.6.3


R6 Records section of procedure does not address how we eventually dispose of the records 4.16.1



Note: All CARs are against QS 9000 TE standards.


I hope to do corrective action, procedure modification and training within a few days.

Michael
