We were issued a C at the audit last year. Our surveillance audit should be soon, HOWEVER we are a seasonal operation. The audit last year was under 7.2 and I assumed that the surveillance audit would be under 8 and it has been rolled out.
There is an addendum in V8 for seasonal operations surveillance audit to be within 30 days of start up, now the certifying body is stating that since the audit was under 7.2 that clause doesn't apply?!
I want to push hard as we haven't ran any production since the closeout of the last audit and I can't begin to train people for the new programs until they return.
Who's right? Can they really do 7.2 since 8 is fully implemented?
