ISO/TS 16949

ISO/TS 16949: Automotive Industry Quality Management System
ISO/TS 16949 is an ISO Technical Specification. The International Automotive Task Force (IATF), which consists of an international group of vehicle manufacturers, plus national trade associations, wrote ISO/TS 16949 in conjunction with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The goal was to develop a universally accepted set of Quality management standards for the automotive industry

Developed by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF), ISO / TS 16949 is the world’s leading automotive standard. It combines a series of quality standards for auto manufacturers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in a single certification. This saves you from having to undergo lots of time-consuming certifications. As an automotive components supplier, ISO / TS 16949 helps you continuously improve your system and process quality and focus fully on customer satisfaction. Customer-specific requirements are implemented to the letter.
