IATF 16949 Certification

About IATF 16949 certification

The International Automotive Task Force has expanded the former ISO ISO/TS 16949 standard into the uniform IATF 16949 standard to assist suppliers finding it increasingly difficult to serve original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and first-tier automotive suppliers. IATF 16949 covers common customer-specific requirements of the automotive industry, such as traceability to support current regulatory changes, safety-related parts and processes, and warranty management processes including NTF (No Trouble Found) addressing.

Just a few steps to your IATF 16949 certification:
