ISO 16949 Automotive Standard

ISO / TS 16949 Automotive certification is applicable to you if you’re working in the design, development, production, installation or service of automotive-related products.

It is similar in content to the ISO 9001 Quality standard and therefore its main focus is the setting up of a system that allows you to monitor customer feedback, positive and negative, and ensures you’re working to supply what your customers expect.

You’ll have to conduct regular reviews at management level and show that you are acting on customer feedback to make improvements to your business.

ISO /TS 16949 Automotive differs from the ISO 9001 Quality standard  in that it includes sections specific to the automotive industry, such as working with sub-contractors.

If you are working within the automotive field then holding this standard sends a clear message to your market that you are operating a well-organised, professional business.

In particular, the customer facing aspect of the standard will help to instil confidence in your product or service in your target market.

ISO/TS 16949 Automotive is designed to be scalable and adaptable and is open to all companies, large and small, who operate within the automotive supply chain.
