What’s changing?

The automotive industry quality standard ISO/TS 16949 is being updated by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF). IATF 16949:2016 will be released 1st October 2016.

All organisations currently certified to ISO/TS 16949:2009 must transition to the new standard by 14th September 2018. After 1st October 2017 no audits (initial, surveillance, recertification or transfer) shall be conducted to ISO/TS 16949:2009.
