IATF 16949 Webinar

In August 2016, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and International Automotive Task Force (IATF) agreed to discontinue the joint development of ISO/TS 16949, the well-known technical specification for automotive sector quality management systems.

IATF will now release the first edition of the new IATF 16949.

The objective of this webinar is to update SGS's customers and any other interested parties on the timeline for suppliers to implement the necessary changes, to present the road map to and the critical steps for transition. However, technical changes to the standard will not be discussed at this time as this information has not yet been released.

This webinar will provide information about the timescales for IATF 16949 transition, and to allow interested parties to ask questions regarding those timescales. We will cover:

  • The IATF decision to publish the IATF 16949 standard as a separate document
  • Guidance for the transition from ISO/TS 16949:2009 to IATF 16949:2016
  • Updates from IATF since April 2016
