TS 16949 is the Automotive Standard developed and controlled
by the Big 3 in America (Chrysler, Daimler and Ford).
1999 the International Automotive Task force (IATF)
announced the launch of a global quality management
system requirement based on ISO/TS 16949. Since then,
the scheme has experienced continual growth. In 1999,
it included 46 contracted certification bodies with
over 1500 certificates issued, controlled by five
IATF oversight offices. In addition, a total of 751
auditors have thus far completed the IATF qualification
and are now certified to conduct audits in a globally
consistent application of the requirements.
IATF have now completed the next goal; to deliver
a harmonized quality management system requirements
document for the automotive industry, based on ISO
9001:2000. The resulting document, ISO/TS 16949:2002,
was released in March 2002. Certification to this
technical specification will provide global recognition
for supplier sourcing across this industry. The revisions
in this document include adoption of the process approach
requirements of ISO9001: 2000, feedback from ISO/TS16949:
1999 and related experience, and the contribution
of other participants including the Japanese Automobile
Manufacturers Association, Inc.(JAMA) and members
of ISO/TC176. Going forward, ISO/TS 16949:2002 and
the related updated IATF recognition scheme was launched
in the second quarter of 2002.
16949 is a specification tailored to meet the automotive
manufacturer's requirements, particularly Quality,
Cost and JIT delivery. It requires effective and efficient
processes with contingency plans to assure un-interrupted
supplies to the assembly line.
IATF has developed a common registration scheme for
supplier 3rd party registration to the ISO/TS 16949.
The registration scheme includes third party auditor
qualifications and common rules for consistent global
registration. Some of the benefits of the IATF registration
• Improved product and process quality
Additional confidence for global sourcing
Reassignment of supplier resources to quality improvement
Common quality system approach in the supply chain
for supplier/subcontractor development and consistency
Reduction in multiple 3rd party registrations.
