IATF and ISO announce IATF to publish IATF 16949 as a separate standard while maintaining alignment with ISO 9001:2016.
In October 2016, IATF is expected to publish IATF 16949:2016 This new standard will supersede and replace the existing ISO/TS 16949, which defines the requirements of a quality management system (QMS) for organizations in the automotive industry. IATF 16949:2016 will be aligned with and refer to ISO 9001:2015. IATF 16949:2016 will not be a stand-alone quality management standard, but it will be implemented as a supplement to, and in conjunction with ISO 9001:2015.
We understand that certification to IATF mandated requirement is critical for our automotive clients to continue to do business, deliver quality products, and continually improve. At BSI, we remain committed to supporting our clients through the transition from ISO/TS 16949 to IATF 16949:2016. As we learn more about this important development, we will ensure that we keep our clients fully updated, so you can understand what this may mean for you.
