Design exclusion

We are a subcontractor and we are doing a part of design and construction. However, we are not authorised to approve or validate our drawings of what we produce. So we are depending consultant for the validation part. We always exclude the design part since we are not authorized. what to do? Please advise!

I don’t know if I have all the relevant data from your situation. Based on the information supplied I highlighted two topics:

  • part of design and construction
  • validation done by external party 

I would not exclude design from the scope of your management system. Why? Because:

  • The customer provides part of the design inputs (common situation), but your company does design too.
  • Validation done by external party is a very common situation, that is why design validation is different from design verification. Validation is done by the client or someone on its behalf when design inputs were provided by a client.
