What is IATF 16949?

IATF 16949:2016 is the principal technical specification and quality management standard for the automotive industry, recognised across the globe. Superseding TS 16949, IATF 16949 brings together standards from across Europe and the US, referencing everything your organisation needs in achieving best practice in designing, developing, manufacturing, installing or servicing automotive products and is applicable to organisations within the automotive supply chain that manufactures or adds value to parts.


Achieving IATF 16949 certification will help provide your organisation with a quality management system that will ultimately lead to improved internal processes and higher customer satisfaction. As a tier 2 or 3 provider, certification to IATF 16949 will probably be a prerequisite for supplying your products higher up the supply chain.

The standard covers prevention of manufacturing defects and waste reduction together with processes for continuing improvement. See below for a full list of benefits.
