ISO/TS 16949:2009 Series
ISO/TS 16949:2009 specified the quality system requirements for the design/development,
production, and (where relevant) installation and servicing of automotive-related
products. The ISO/TS 16949:2009 1st Edition released in 1999, was based on ISO 9001:1994.
To emphasize continuous improvement in the supplier base, the International Automotive
Task Force later revised the ISO/TS 16949:1999 requirements to align with the ISO
9001:2008 framework. The new ISO/TS 16949:2009 includes ISO 9001:2008, and successfully
harmonizes the supplier quality system requirements of the automakers of US, Germany,
Italy, France, Japan, Korea and Malaysia. It details the fundamental, sector-specific
quality systems requirements, which sustain continuous improvement and emphasize
defect prevention, while simultaneously reducing the magnitude of variation and
waste in the supply chain and encouraging improvement in customer satisfaction.
ISO/TS 16949:2009 focuses on an organization's ability to realize its stated goals
as well as achieve customer satisfaction by delivering conforming parts on time
to customer specification at acceptable cost. ISO/TS 16949:2009 concentrates on
the effective linkages in the company's business plan, quality policy, quality objectives
and measures. The standard specifies how objectives can be achieved and deployed
throughout the organization.
