QualityAdvantage provides all the expertise and support needed to implement, maintain and improve an IATF 16949:2016 Quality Management System (QMS).

This new standard replaces ISO/TS 16949:2009, defining the requirements of a quality management system for organizations in the automotive industry.

IATF 16949:2016 is based on ISO 9001:2015, complies with its structure and requirements, and is considered a supplement to ISO 9001:2015. An organization in the automotive sector seeking IATF 16949:2016 certification must also comply with ISO 9001:2015.

Transition Timeline
ISO 9001:2015 was published September 23, 2015. IATF 16949:2016 was published October 1, 2016.

All audits must be to IATF 16949:2016 requirements by October 1, 2017. Certification to ISO/TS 16949 requirements is not permitted after that date.

Transition to IATF 16949 must be complete by September 14, 2018. ISO/TS 16949 certificates will no longer be valid.
