Driving quality through the supply chain

ISO TS16949 is a technical specification and ISO Standard which aligns existing US, German, French, and Italian automotive quality management system standards within the global automotive industry. It specifies the quality assurance requirements for the design/development, production, installation, and servicing of automotive-related products. 


The specification is based on ISO 9001:2008 and encourages a process approach. Understanding the inter-relationship of processes through the use of the standard can enable improved product and process quality and ultimately avoids variation in the supply chain.


​The global automotive industry demands world class levels of product quality assurance, productivity, risk management and competitiveness as well as continual improvement.  


ISO TS 16949 has been developed by the industry, the International Automotive Task Force (IATF), to encourage improvement in both the supply chain and the TS certification process. In fact, for the majority of leading vehicle manufacturers, certification to this specification is a mandatory requirement for doing business.

This specification aligns and supersedes existing US, German, French, and Italian automotive quality system standards, including QS-9000, VDA6.1, EAQF, and ASQ. It specifies the quality management system requirements for the design/development, production, installation, and servicing of all automotive-related products. First published in March 1999 and revised in 2002 and in 2009, there are now over 47,500 TS quality certificates issued in the three major business areas of the Americas-Europe-Asia. ​

However, it is only applicable to sites where production or service parts are manufactured for the original equipment market.
