ISO/TS 16949 CERTIFICATION
Helping Position Your Company as a Reliable Partner to the Automotive and Motorcycle Industry
The automotive/motorcycle industry is one of the most challenging industries in the world. It operates under extreme pressures of cost and time. Being able to rely on suppliers is key, not only for the car/motorcycle manufacturers, but also for other organisations in the supply chain. They all require suppliers that have their processes under control, that understand their customers’ specific requirements and focus on continuous improvement. Appropriate certification of your management system offers a decisive advantage in demonstrating that your company matches these criteria.
What is ISO/TS 16949? ISO/TS 16949 is the only standard recognised worldwide related to quality management as it applies to any organisation active in the automotive/motorcycle supply chain. It is based on: • The eight quality management principles (all fundamental to good business practice): Customer focus, Leadership, Involvement of people, Process approach, System approach to management, Continual improvement, Fact based decision-making, Mutually beneficial supplier relationships • Fulfilment of customer specific requirements
