Quality management systems -- Particular requirements for the application of ISO 9001:2008 for automotive production and relevant service part organizations
IATF 16949:2016, in conjunction with ISO 9001:2008, defines the quality management system requirements for the design and development, production and, when relevant, installation and service of automotive-related products.
IATF 16949:2016 is applicable to sites of the organization where customer-specified parts, for production and/or service, are manufactured.
Supporting functions, whether on-site or remote (such as design centres, corporate headquarters and distribution centres), form part of the site audit as they support the site, but cannot obtain stand-alone certification to IATF 16949:2016.
IATF 16949:2016 can be applied throughout the automotive supply chain.
