IATF 16949:2016 – The Standard for the Automotive Industry

The IATF 16949 (International Automotive Task Force) has been in force since 01st October 2016. The new standard for quality management in the automotive industry replaced the previous ISO/TS 16949:2009. Since September, all certificates based on the old ISO/TS 16949 standard have lost their validity. The new standard is to be seen as a supplement to the generally valid quality standard DIN ISO 9001:2015 and thus provides additional automotive-specific requirements. Future audits will therefore have to consider the requirements of both standards. Like DIN ISO 9001, IATF 16949 also has a high-level structure.
