         7, SR001,     SR 001 does not address new organizations that want
                       certification to 91XX:2009 since it is a transition rule
  1       20 Dec
                       only; however, many CB's are asking what days to use in
           2010        quoting new organizations.



         7.d, SR001, If a client is certified to more than one AQMS standard (e.g. 9100
  2        20 Dec & 9110), what are the requirements for duration of transition
            2010     audits?
         7.d, SR001,   For the revised SR001 (dated 12/20/2010), do CB's need to
  3        20 Dec      requite clients for the transition based on changes in the revised
            2010       SR001?
         7.d, SR001,
                       Are certification body's allowed to still factor in justified
  4        20 Dec
                       reductions when calculating SR001 audit days for transition?
            2010

         7.e, SR001, Our understanding from SR001 is that it is acceptable to conduct
  5        20 Dec transition over more than one surveillance audit. What are IAQG
            2010     expectations for this? E.g. reporting? OASIS entry?




                                                                           1 of 6

                     Why in 7.i there are two sections that read very similar?

                     ii complete the audits to the 9100/9110/9120:2009 standard for
                     all sites required to be audited for a given surveillance cycle (at
         7.i, SR001,
                     least 50% of the sites).
  6        20 Dec
            2010
                     iii complete the central function audit and the planned sites
                     audits (at least 50% of the sites) for that surveillance cycle to the
                     9100/9110/9120:2009 AQMS standard prior to certification.
                     These two appear to be duplicate requirements




                     When a CB issues a new certificate to one of the existing (ISO
         7.n, SR001,
                     9001:2000 based) AQMS standards, what expiry date should be
  7        20 Dec
                     used. Should it be for the full 3 year period or 30th June 2012 in
            2010
                     line with the SR001 91xx:2009 transition timeline?

                    The timeline reads “all audits after 1 July 2011 shall be to
                    the new standard”.
         Exhibit A,
  10     SR001, 20 Could an organization that is not ready to transition but
         Dec 2010 requires their surveillance early on (e.g. Aug 2011) have
                    their surveillance to the “current” standard and then do a
                    special transition audit later in the transition year?
                    Can an AEA who is registered on OASIS for 9100:2009 but not for
                    the previous standard (e.g. AS9100 Rev B, EN 9100:2003)
  11        NA
                    conduct a transition audit during surveillance as provided for by

                                              for IAQG OPMT SR001 – Rules for 9100/9110/9120:2009 Transition

                                              Answer
The CB is required to follow the ISO 9001 audit day calculations per IAF Mandatory Document 5
and the additional 9100, 9110 or 9120 days in 9104 (issued 2005-01), table 2 until such time as
9104/1 is published and implemented.

The current requirements include justification for all calculations. It is also to be noted for the
ISO 9001 days, IAF MD 5 recommends considering increasing audit days for the aerospace
industry due to a high degree of regulations.
SR001 shall still be followed. CBs are required to justify and apply sufficient duration for an
effective audit as required by ISO/IEC 17021 and SR001 section 7.d.iii.

Also, in Europe EA document 7/05 for combined audits applies.
No, the revision to SR001, dated 20 Dec 2010, only includes clarifications, there were no
changes to the document.

Yes, only for the ISO 9001 audit day calculation per IAF Mandatory Document 5. The additional
9100, 9110 or 9120 days must follow 9104 (issued 2005-01), table 2 with no reductions.

SR001 allows the transition over more than 1 surveillance audit. The expectations are set out in
SR001. In terms of entry to OASIS all of the transition audits are to be entered against the 2009
version of the applicable AQMS standard(s) however the certificate can only be edited or
modified once the certification decision has been taken.

                                                Answer



ii is specifying that all sites required to be audited for a surveillance must be audited. Iii is
explaining all that must be done before certification.

They could be looked at as redundant, but the message was two different messages. Making
sure all required audits were conducted to the new standard (e.g. if 10 sites are to be audited,
they all have to be audited to the 2009 standard, not 5 to the existing standard and 5 to the
2009 standard) and what had to be completed prior to certification.




No, most clients are transitioning not recertifying. The normal three year cycle of the existing
AQMS certification shall be maintained and the certification expiration date shall be maintained.
It is assumed for transition that all clients will transition and not recertify, unless they were
already planned for re-certification during this timeframe.

All certificates not transitioned by 1 July 2012 will automatically expire in OASIS on this date;
therefore, the revision to the existing expiration date by CB's is not necessary. And if the client
does not successfully transition the existing certification shall be withdrawn by the CB on 01 July
2012 in accordance with SR001 section 8.b.

In the case where a client wishes to re-certify early, that is allowed and must be managed by the
CB making sure all re-certification requirements are met.

                                            Answer




No, all audits starting on or after 1 July 2011 must be to the 2009 version of the AQMS
standards.




It is acceptable for an AEA authenticated for 2009 version of the AQMS to conduct the transition
audit as the standard to be audited is the 2009 version of the AQMS.
