IATF 16949 Industry specific standard for the Automotive Industry
Quality Management Systems – Requirements for Automotive Industry Supply Chain Organizations.
IATF 16949:2016 is a companion quality management system (QMS) standard written in conjunction with ISO 9001:2015. IATF 16949 is the automotive industry’s most widely used international standard for quality management. IATF is the International Automotive Task Force and the most recent version of the 16949 standard was developed with industry feedback and engagement of AIAG members of North America. The top tier automobile manufacturers were involved in the development of the standard to create a benchmark for its supply chain management.
IATF 16949:2016 identifies the requirements for organizations that are involved in the automotive supply chain. IATF 16949 follows a process approach to manufacturing/supplying quality products and services. It references ISO 9001:2015 throughout the standard so if you already have ISO 9001:2015 certification, you are on your way to achieving IATF 16949:2016 certification.
Many organizations find that they are required to become certified to IATF 16949 in order to meet their customer requirements for delivery of high quality products and services. Documenting quality management system processes, ensuring a system for continual improvement, product quality and safety are key to the IATF 16949 quality management system (QMS).
