Spread of the coronavirus makes it necessary to dispense with QS audits
Due to the progressive spread of the coronavirus (Sars-CoV-2), QS urgently recommends its system partners to refrain from carrying out all QS audits within the next two months. Prior to this, QS had already pointed out to all partners in the QS network the possibility of postponing upcoming audit dates after consultation with the respective certification body.
In order to achieve an approach that is acceptable to all economic operators, QS is currently considering extending the delivery authorization for all sites certified in the QS system by 2 months. As soon as the responsible committees have made a decision, QS will immediately inform all companies in the QS network.
