What is IATF 16949?

The International Automotive Task Force (IATF) published the IATF 16949 as the Quality Management Standard for the automotive industry. IATF 16949 is considered as an innovative standard, which is customer- focused and integrates the automotive customer specific requirements.  IATF 16949 is not a separate quality management standard, but it is rather applied as a supplement to and combined with ISO 9001. This international standard aligns with other key management system standards and outlines the Quality Management requirements for organizations which work in the production and/or service of automotive parts and/or related accessory parts.

Why is a AQMS important for you?

Having said that, being certified against IATF 16949 will enable you to help organizations reach high levels of quality and safety, while lowering costs. This standard was designed to help you become more efficient in the workplace by preventing defects, reducing waste and unnecessary operations. Thus, demonstrating your commitment to the best automotive practices will enable you to improve your reputation and get better job opportunities. IATF 16949 empowers individuals to survive in the automotive industry by becoming easily adapted to the ongoing changes, and respond to internal and external threats. In addition, this standard ensures that all the business practices are well-aligned with the respective business strategy in order to achieve sustainable development, and offer safe and qualitative products and services.
