For many organisations within the automotive supply chain it is virtually mandatory that they meet the requirements of ISO/TS 16949 – 2009. This standard, which has been prepared jointly by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF) and representatives of ISO technical committee TC 176, incorporates the requirements of the former QS-9000, VDA 6.1, and will meet the quality system expectations of the ‘big three’ US manufacturers, Ford, Chrysler and General Motors, as well as those of European manufacturers. Auditing of the quality system is a key requirement of the ISO/TS 16949:2009 standard. It is a specific requirement of the standard that Auditors are qualified to audit to the standard, and this course will provide the training needs of the Internal Auditors.
