Project Description


International Organization for Standardization

ISO certification certifies that a management system, manufacturing process, service, or documentation procedure has all the requirements for standardization and quality assurance.

ISO/TS 16949 is an ISO technical specification aimed at the development of a quality management system that provides for continual improvement, emphasizing defect prevention and the reduction of variation and waste in the automotive industry supply chain

TS 16949 was an internationally recognized Quality Management System specification for the automotive industry. IATF 16949:2016 is the current version, updated from TS 16949:2009

IATF 16949:2016 is the International Standard for Automotive Quality Management Systems. … IATF 16949 emphasizes the development of a process oriented quality management system that provides for continual improvement, defect prevention and reduction of variation and waste in the supply chain.

The name ISO comes from the Greek word “isos,” which means equal. The name used for the standards organization is the same in all countries.

IATF 16949:2016 is the current version, updated from TS 16949:2009. If you are interested in becoming certified you should learn more about the current version- IATF 16949, one of the automotive industry’s most widely used international standards.

IATF 16949 specifies requirements for a Quality Management System when an organization wants to: Demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products that meet customer and applicable statutory, regulatory and product safety requirements. Enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system.

The price of CE certification can differ greatly from one product to another. I have seen prices range from $ 500 to $ 50,000.
