Just wrapped up level 3 cert audit. Auditor documented major non-conformance due to comnpany receiving a regualtory warning letter in early 2013. Per Part A 5.03 of Edition 7.1 suppliers are required to report any warning letetrs as well as class 1 & 2 recall to the cert body. Discussed the fact that edition 7.1 was not effective until 7/1/13 post receipt of the warning letter. Auditor's stance is that Edition 7 was interpreted to include warning letters as a "regulatory infringement".
Curious if anyone familiar with Edition 7 interpreted this clause to mean that any regulatory infringement other than class 1 & 2 recalls required notification of cert body?
