Answer:

Organizations are allowed to exclude any clause from ISO 9001:2015 if such clause is not applicable for the organization. In your case, you can exclude clause 8.3 Design and development and you should consider excluding clause 8.5.3 Property belonging to customers or external providers.

For every clause you exclude form your Quality Management System, you must provide justification, in your example, it can be a simple statement that you exclude clause 8.3 because you do not perform design and development as a process in your company.

For more information about exclusions in ISO 9001:2015, see: What clauses can be excluded in ISO 9001:2015? https://advisera.com/9001academy/blog/2015/07/07/what-clauses-can-be-excluded-in-iso-90012015/2015/
