Do you know that certification to IATF 16949 is mandatory for organizations who wish to manufacture parts for the automotive industry? All ISO/TS 16949 certificates will no longer be valid after September 2018!

About The Transition   

The automotive industry produces high-risk, high cost products and services and has tightly controlled industry requirements. The goal of this new standard is the development of a quality management system that provides for continual improvement, emphasizing defect prevention, and the reduction of variation and waste in the supply chain. 

Key Changes include:

  • Risk-based thinking
  • Integration of customer-specific requirements
  • First and second party auditor competency
  • Product safety
  • Manufacturing Feasibility
  • Warranty Management
  • Development of products with embedded software

Why Transition? 

Certification to IATF 16949 is mandatory for organizations who wish to manufacture parts for the automotive industry. If IATF 16949 is implemented and properly managed, an organization will:

  • Receive recognition from regulatory authorities
  • Produce safer and more reliable products
  • Meet or exceed customer requirements
  • Improve processes and documentation system
Important Dates To Note
  • October 2017

Beginning Oct 1, all audits must be to IATF 16949. All organizations seeking initial certification can no longer certify to ISO/TS 16949.

  • September 2018

Transition to IATF 16949 must be complete by Sep 14. All ISO/TS 16949 certifications will no longer be valid.
