Quality management systems — Particular requirements for the application of ISO 9001:2008 for automotive production and relevant service part organizations
What does ISO 16949 do?
ISO 16949, in conjunction with ISO 9001:2015, defines the quality management systems’ requirements for the design & development, production and, when relevant, installation and service of automotive-related products.
ISO/TS 16949 benefits to your business
If you are contractually obliged to gain certification, looking to gain new business or enter new markets, certification to this standard helps deliver
- Reduced costs
- Increased confidence
- Easy integration
- Competitive advantage
ISO/ TS 16949 offers organizations in the automotive industry, the opportunity for standardization and improvement.
Who can use ISO 16949?
ISO/ TS 16949 is applicable to sites of organizations where customer-specified parts, for production and/or service are manufactured. Supporting functions, whether on-site or remote including design centers, corporate headquarters, and distribution centers, form part of the site audit but can’t obtain stand-alone certification to ISO/TS 16949.
ISO/TS 16949 can be applied throughout the automotive supply chain. If you want to supply many of the world’s largest automotive manufacturers, you will need to achieve this standard because it is a contractual requirement for many of them.
