For ISO 9001:2008, my company cited Section 7.3 Design and development as an exclusion. Our reasoning was there are no capabilities to perform product design activities and there is no customer requirement to conduct product design activities. In other words, no orders are accepted that require us to conduct design and development activities. We also cited Section 7.5.2 Validation of processes for production and service as an exclusion, as all parts are monitored and measured at the point of fabrication. Also, Section 7.5.1.a Control of Production and Services, excluding services only as we do not perform after sales service. I can't tell for sure how to include this within the ISO 9001: 2015 standard. I've heard that the word 'exclusion' is not allowed in the new standard, but I've also seen quality manuals with a section still devoted to exclusions. I've even seen companies cite historical exclusions, citing ISO 9001:2008 directly. I'm not sure which is right, so I would appreciate any and all advice! Thank you!
