Establish your conformity to automotive industry standards
The global automotive industry upholds rigorous and specific standards of quality for vehicle original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and suppliers of products and production materials. OEMs and suppliers recognise the importance of complying with these standards to remain competitive. Aligning to a quality management system with ISO 9001 as a basis is also important for increasing profitability by reducing problems and risks in the supply chain.
The revised automotive industry standard for quality management - IATF 16949 - was published in October 2016, replacing the former standard ISO/TS 16949.
