In IATF clause 184.108.40.206 -- don't understand product safety thing. We make small washers, third tier supplier, nothing to do with product safety. How do I satisfy this need? I am sure others might be in similar situation.
The fact is, your product doesn't have to have any safety issues, but still you need to establish product safety process that will ensure that you identified the requirements from product safety and you control product safety characteristics. If there are no product safety characteristics that's fine but still you need to have this process. This requirement does seem to me as an overkill but it cannot be excluded from the QMS unfortunately.
