I have one more question. In the attached file I can see that some document are not mandatory for IATF certification. Does that mean that I have the possibility to exclude them totally from my scope when I’m implementing the IATF in m y business?
It is possible to exclude documents that are not mandatory for IATF 16949 certification totally from the scope. That means you don’t need to write documents you have excluded from the scope.
My suggestion is for you to perform a risk analysis that can show you whether you need the procedure or work instruction or not. Basically, if after performing the risk analysis you determine that the procedure or work instruction is not necessary for you and also not mandatory by the standard itself, you can exclude it.
