Get up-to-date with the latest changes to the Automotive Certification Scheme for ISO/TS 16949:2009

If you are an ISO/TS 16949:2009 registered organization, auditor, or implementer, you should be aware that a new version of the Automotive Certification Scheme for ISO/TS 16949:2009 has just been released with an implementation date of January 1, 2009. The IATF Automotive Certification Scheme has a major impact on the registrars and therefore impacts the entire ISO/TS 16949:2009 scheme. The importance of understanding these new rules cannot be overstated.

The Automotive Certification Scheme for ISO/TS 16949:2009, 3rd Edition is a complete rewrite and reorganization of the previous version, therefore no comparison can be made between the old document and this revision. Some key elements of the new revision include:

  • No outsourcing of certification activities
  • Changes to the determination of necessary audit days
  • Changes to the writing of nonconformities and corrective actions
  • Increased list of IATF Loss of Certification requirements
  • Increased impartiality rules, including contracts to registrars

The information in the new edition has been covered to some extent with registrars through the Auditor Recertification Training and/or nonconformities through accreditation audits. However, for most of us, this is the first time we've seen the new requirements. In order to help you understand these changes, Omnex is offering a free, one-hour webinar highlighting the changes that could impact your ability to achieve or retain IATF certification. Don't be left out in the cold on January 1st, register today!
