ISO/TS 16949:2016 - Automotive Production and Relevant Services

ISO/ TS 16949:2016 (Automobile Industry Quality Management System Standard)

ISO/TS 16949 is the only standard recognized worldwide related to quality management as it applies to any organization active in the automotive/motorcycle supply chain. It is based on:
  • The eight quality management principles (all fundamental to good business practice): Customer focus, Leadership, Involvement of people, Process approach, System approach to management, Continual improvement, Fact based decision-making, Mutually beneficial supplier relationships
  • Fulfilment of customer specific requirements
ISO/TS 16949 details the fundamental, sector-specific, quality systems requirements that sustain continuous improvement and emphasize defect prevention while simultaneously reducing the magnitude of variation and waste in the supply chain. ISO/TS 16949 is implemented for all branches of manufacturers and suppliers of products or production material, services such as heat treatment and galvanising and other products specified by customers.

Benefits of ISO/TS 16949: 
  • A commercial advantage during contract negotiations.
  • A clear focus on continual improvement, emphasizing defect prevention and reduction of variation and waste.
  • Time and cost savings, by avoiding multiple customer specific certification audits
  • The international recognition of the ISO/TS 16949:2009 standard increases the credibility of organisation when bidding for global sourcing contracts or expanding business locally.
  • Gaining certification also helps to reduce production variations and improve manufacturing efficiency which can positively impact bottom line.
  • Helps to create a common quality system approach to the entire supply chain (for suppliers/subcontractors) and facilitates access to the industry's best practices
