Our Registrar is questioning if our company applies to IATF, I have been searching for an answer online, but can't find one. They told me in an Email, "With what you do, we have to make sure your scope is applicable to IATF certification. If I just push It through without all of the details and we get an auditor scheduled and sent out to your facility and you don’t meet the requirements of IATF, a lot of time and money will have been wasted and no one will be happy. And, if the auditor audits you and shouldn’t be, the IAOB will come down hard on us for certifying you and we may get a Major nonconformance because of it." This has me worried. I sent them the information they requested, and tried to call them for answers, but haven't got a hold of them yet. We remanufacture batteries for OEM's to be replaced in cars under warranty. We do not manufacture any new parts for new production. Does IATF apply to our company? Can anyone point me to the requirement? in 1.0 ELIGIBILITY FOR CERTIFICATION TO IATF 16949, it talked about it, but it seems very vague, and doesn't give me a clear answer. Google is absolutely worthless with all the sponsored content. It's impossible to find anything on there.
