In order to deal with the emergence of new challenges and the constant changes in the automotive industry, IATF and ISO agreed to discontinue their ISO/TS 16949 development partnership and introduce a new standard: IATF 16949. But what will change in the transition from ISO/TS 16949 to IATF 16949? How should this transition take place?.
IATF 16949 will be implemented in conjunction with, and as a complement to, ISO 9001: 2015. Therefore, IATF 16949 will not be a self-sufficient quality management standard. The goal is to emphasize defect prevention, provide continuous improvement, and reduce waste and disparity in the supply chain.
This means that companies seeking IATF 16949 certification must also comply with ISO 9001: 2015 requirements.
