Conformity with IATF 16949 is the condition for acceptance into the automotive manufacturers’ list of suppliers. In order to get certified, those responsible in an organisation must come to grips with the concrete implementation of requirements. In this regard, the competence of IATF 16949 auditors is of crucial importance. On one hand, they have to implement the requirements of IATF 16949 in their own company in a targeted manner and assess the effectiveness of the quality management measures. On the other hand, they can review their suppliers as to whether their QM system complies with IATF 16949.This also includes the competent handling of the respective methods, as the IATF 16949 clearly states as a requirement.
