Defining the scope of IATF 16949 based QMS

Hi Strahinja, i am not in charge of the QMS but am being affected by the new requirements of the IATF. Our company has a corporate organization for sourcing that we will be communicating to the IATF but there is confusion if all sites where people is performing their functions need to be reported as supporting sites or should we just report the corporate site where the responsible person is sitting and provide the org chart of the people sitting in different parts of the world (could even be home) or should we say we have supporting auditable functions around the world. not sure what is the practice on this cases .

Answer:

Supporting functions, whether onsite or remote ( such as design centres, corporate headquarters, and distribution centres) should be included in the Quality Management System. you need to include all of them if they are part of your company. Auditing just a corporate headquarters won't provide evidence that you company is fully compliant with the standard, all processes and functions need to be audited.
