The quality requirements that need to be met by Tier 1, 2 and 3 automotive suppliers are not only particularly high, they also vary from country to country, and from manufacturer to manufacturer. To avoid expensive time-consuming multiple certifications, more and more companies are adopting the harmonised technical specification ISO/TS 16949, which combines a number of international quality standards – including QS 9000 (USA), VDA 6.1 (Germany), EAQF (France), AVSQ (Italy) – and is recognised by car manufacturers worldwide.
As a long-standing partner of the auto industry, we have supported the development and introduction of this important industry standard from the outset. We certify leading suppliers in Europe, Asia and the USA and have extensive experience of ISO/TS 16949 as well as of the individual requirements set by major manufacturers.
With DEKRA you can expect flexibility. As with certification to ISO 9001, which provides the structural basis for the technical specification 16949, our auditors always take the individual procedures in your company into account. As a result, you can efficiently apply the requirements of the standard to your specific processes.
