What is ISO/TS 16949?
ASR, An ISO/TS 16949 Registrar Answers

ISO-TS-16949-standard-for-automotive-by-ASRISO/TS 16949 is a Technical Specification not an ISO standard.

It specifies the Quality Management System (QMS) requirements for the design, the development, production, installation, and servicing of automotive products.

The International Automotive Task Force (IATF), which consists of an international group of vehicle manufacturers, wrote ISO/TS 16949 in conjunction with the International Organization for Standards (ISO). This specification aligns existing American, German (VDA6.1), French (EAQF) and Italian (AVSQ) automotive quality systems standards within the global automotive industry.

Together with ISO 9001, ISO/TS 16949 specifies the quality management system requirements for the design/development, production, installation and servicing of automotive products.  In addition, there are customer specific requirements that are required by individual subscribing vehicle manufacturers. ISO/TS 16949 does not replace the existing quality system requirements.

Some of the benefits of the IATF registration scheme include:

  • better product and process quality
  • improved positioning in the market of global sourcing
  • common quality approach in the supply chain for development and product consistency
  • reduction in multiple registrations
The IATF developed a common registration scheme for supplier 3rd party registration to the ISO/TS 16949. ASR is a trusted ISO/TS 16949 registrar.
