Aside from the cost aspect due to the late postponement/rescheduling of the facility audit ... is there any possible negative to doing so if we don't feel we are ready?

Our desk audit was Nov 29th, and I am working through the corrective actions ... but there are certain things that are, shall we say, just not fully in place yet.

I understand that we will have to pay the audit fee due to the timeframe of the postponement, but aside from that, could anyone see any issues?

Really should not be any issue with this, unless of course the time lag between when you had your desk audit and the new date for your certification audit is excessive. The lag in time will need to be approved by the CB.

I do not see an issue either.
