ISO/TS 16949:2009

Standard for Quality Management Systems for the Automotive Supplier Industry

ISO TS 16949 is a voluntary quality management standard for the automotive supplier industry, issued by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF).

It combines existing automotive quality standards and quality management system requirements into one certification. Based on ISO 9001, ISO TS 16949 outlines the requirements for product development, manufacture and, where applicable, assembly and maintenance. The certification always applies to one production site.

Expert auditors analyse and evaluate the customers' organisation. If all necessary requirements are fulfilled, the site is certified according to ISO TS 16949. The management system at the organisation is subject to periodic surveillance.

Certified organizations may use the test mark in their communications.
