Introduction to IATF 16949 Certification
IATF 16949:2016, which replaced ISO/TS 16949:2009, is an independent standard for Quality Management System (QMS) applicable to the automotive sector. Aligned to the requirements of ISO 9001:2015, it focuses on continual improvements, particularly defect prevention, reduction of waste and preventing variation in the supply chain.
To get certified, organizations need to implement a QMS aligned to IATF 16949 standards which must be audited and approved by a recognized certification body.
There are two types of IATF certifications:
- Certification of company’s QMS against IATF 16949 requirements
- Certification of individuals to audit against the IATF 16949 requirements
