Since its publication in October 2016, the IATF 16949 automotive regulations have replaced ISO/TS 16949: 2009 and are used worldwide in the automotive industry.

Without certification according to IATF 16949, delivery to the automotive industry cannot take place and is thus without alternative.
This standard describes the management system of production and development. The IATF 16949 can be applied to all locations of an organisation. However, serial parts, spare parts or original accessories must be manufactured.
IATF 16949 Certified companies must conduct an IATF 16949 internal audit once a year. The auditor must also be qualified and approved for this.

  • Only one automotive supplier standard is required.
  • Worldwide recognition of the standard.
  • Improvement of product and process quality.
  • Process-oriented certification process.

If you have shortages of auditors or do not have a qualified IATF 16949 auditor, we are happy to take over the internal audit for you.

An outsider can perform the audit objectively/neutrally and an external person is not dependent on the respective departments. You will always receive feedback or recommendations from our experts.

Our professional experts can also create action plans for you and provide support during implementation or monitoring.

The PIAQ offers internal audits according to IATF 16949 with auditors experienced in the automotive industry for many years.
