What is IATF 16949?

"IATF 16949:2016, coupled with the applicable customer-specific requirements, defines the quality management system requirements for automotive production, service and/or accessory parts.  This standarad is an autonomous QMS standard that is fully aligned with the structure and requirements of ISO 9001:2015. However, it is not a stand-alone document, but is implemented as a supplement to, and in conjunction with, ISO9001:2015, which must be purchased separately. This revised standard cancels and replaces ISO/TS16949:2009."

SO/TS 16949 was a common automotive quality system requirements specification based on ISO 9001, QS-9000 (U.S.), VDA6.1 (German), AVSQ (Italian), and EAQF (French) specifications.  It was jointly developed by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF), Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association, Inc. (JAMA), with support from  ISO/TC 176, Quality management and quality assurance.  Most automotive customers have published customer specific supplements to ISO/TS 16949 which were a binding extension of the specification and were subject to audits.
