ISO/TS 16949

ISO/TS 16949 Revised standard
As a harmonized standard , ISO/TS 16949 brings together the requirements of QS-9000 and VDA6.1 . The first edition of ISO/TS 16949 was produced in 1999 on the basis of ISO 9001:1994 . The major revision of ISO 9001 in 2008 also made a revision of ISO/TS 16949:2009 necessary .

In this connection , many new requirements were adopted by the automobile industry so that more effective compatibility is ensured with other management systems , including environmental management , industrial safety management , financial management and risk management systems .

Time and costs savings
The newly revised ISO/TS 16949:2002 standard can be regarded ad trend setting . The expenditure involved with multiple certifications such as VDA6.1 and QS-9000 will no longer be necessary .

In the past , many suppliers saw themselves compelled to have their quality management system certified both according to VDA6.1 and QS-9000 . This meant not only increased time expenditure , but also additional costs involved with the setting-up and maintenance of an extended system .

New standard ¨C Worldwide recognition
The new standard offers process-orientated harmonization between ISO9001, VDA6.1 and QS-9000 which is recognized by the American , Japanese , as well as European automobile industries , thus providing worldwide recognition .

Who benefits from a changeover?

  • Internationally-operating automobile industry suppliers; companies which are already certified according to QS-9000 and/or VDA6.1 , and for which a follow-up audit is due .
  • Suppliers who can provide proof of a QS-9000 or VDA6.1 certificate and would like to extend their systems.

Suppliers who are planning first-time certification should consider ISO/TS 16949 directly .

First get certified-Then reap the benefits !
Certification also provides these many advantages :

  • Improved product and process quality
  • Coordinated quality assurance approach in the supply chain worldwide
  • Release of valuable resources to fulfill other tasks
  • Additional trust for your firm in global procurement processes
  • Cost savings due to lower expenditures
  • Competitive advantages at the international level
  • Increased opportunities to realize the benefits of internationalization
