Audit Expectations - Customer Specific Requirements
Tuesday, 18 June 2013
In a continuing effort to promote the integrity and credibility of automotive supplier certification, Ford, GM and Chrysler sat down August 12, 2013 with members of the International Automotive Certification Bodies Association (IACBA) to communicate the approach they want to see from Certification Body auditors when auditing Customer Specific Requirements under ISO/TS 16949.
IACBA is an association of Certification Bodies that focuses on promoting the integrity and credibility of automotive supplier certification.
IACBA annually holds several board and/or general membership meetings at various locations around the world as well as many teleconferences between board, committee and special project team members. This participation contributes to the ongoing maintenance and improvement of the automotive audit process.
In line with their ongoing mission, the IACBA held an August 12, 2013 workshop for members and member associated auditors in Southfield, MI to communicate information regarding Customer Specific Requirements (CSR). Ford, GM and Chrysler sent representatives to this IACBA workshop. Each representative provided a presentation on the approach their OEM wants to see from Certification Body auditors when performing CSR audits under ISO/TS 16949.
ASR has prepared for its auditors a summary of the content of the OEM presentations and is also sharing it with ASR's ISO/TS 16949 clients.
