IATF 16949

QM certification for automotive suppliers according to IATF 16949:2016

The goal of IATF 16949:2016, the world's most comprehensive standard for quality management in the automotive industry, is to achieve the highest possible quality for motor vehicles through uniform standards throughout the entire production chain. The standard was developed by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF), a working group of European and American car manufacturers and automobile associations. Therefore, certification according to IATF 16949 is almost always a basic requirement to be integrated into the supply chain of automobile manufacturers.

IATF 16949:2016 is based on ISO 9001:2015, supplemented by specific requirements for series and spare parts production in the automotive industry. This close connection to ISO 9001 makes it easier for companies to extend an existing quality management system by the additional requirements of IATF 16949 - without the annoying duplication of effort, e.g. in documentation.
