What is IATF 16949:2016?
IATF 16949:2016 is a globally recognised standard for the automotive manufacturing industry, first introduced in 1999 and updated in 2009 as ISO/TS 16949. ISO/TS 16949 was superseded by IATF 16949:2016 in 2016. In the hyper competitive world of car manufacturing, this is a much-needed benchmark which ensures manufacturers all over the world adhere to maintaining high quality standards and by doing so preserve their competitiveness and brand reputation.
What are the benefits of IATF 16949:2016?
The bottom line is IATF 16949:2016 is good for business. It is becoming a mandatory requirement for suppliers of major automotive manufacturers, who in turn are increasingly likely to require their own suppliers to be certified to at least a minimum ISO 9001 standard to be considered as a potential supplier.
How do we go about achieving the elements of IATF 16949:2016?
The basis of IATF 16949:2016 standard is ISO 9001:2015 quality standard. However, IATF 16949:2016 has specific additional requirements for manufacturers and suppliers which are designed to minimise the risk of errors in the manufacturing process and by doing so increase customer satisfaction.
How do we achieve IATF 16949:2016 certification?
HPA will undertake an initial audit of your company’s existing systems and operations, through a coherent planning and implementation stage, and can assist your business in preparing for successful third-party assessment for the TS16949 standard. We will work with you at every step to ensure the accreditation is as straightforward and cost effective as possible. The standard for certification is set by the International Automotive Task Force (IAFT). There are several assessment bodies accredited by the IATF to certificate the standard.
