What is IATF16949?

IATF16949 is a global quality management system standard for the automotive industry.  IATF16949 : 2016 incorporates the structure and requirements of the ISO9001: 2015 quality management system standard with additional automotive customer-specific requirements.

It emphasizes the development of a process oriented quality management system that provides for continual improvement, defect prevention and reduction of variation and waste in the supply chain. The goal is to meet customer requirements efficiently and effectively.

The automotive standard applies to internal and external suppliers that provide:

  • Production or service parts,
  • Production materials,
  • Assemblies,
  • Heat treating, welding, painting, plating or other finishing services directly relating to automotive parts
