VDA 6.4

The VDA volume 6.4 is aimed primarily at manufacturers of automotive production equipment and is part of the VDA 6.x standard family.

The volume mainly assesses the quality management system for production equipment in the automotive industry. It describes the system requirement for the production of production resources (machines, plants, etc.). Included are custom-made items as well as mass-produced production resources and their accessories, as well as a combination of both elements.

Manufacturers of automotive equipment must prove their ability to qualify for their clients. The certificate serves as proof for these companies and must be carried out annually in accordance with VDA 6.4. The auditor needs evidence of qualifications and has to be authorised.

The specific requirements of the automotive industry are taken into account. Process analyses are used for the predefined process. Efficiency of processes is primarily audited and considered.

We examine your processes and areas by applying the VDA 6.4 volume for conformity and identifying potential for improvement. The results of our evaluation help you to classify the processes or the project or the supplier and to define and categorise the further planning and prioritisation of measures. Our PIAQ auditors present optimisation and cost saving potentials.

In addition to one-off process audits for the prevention and correction of process deficits, we also offer continuous improvement process measures in accordance with a defined audit plan.

The auditing of your organisation and its interfaces according to VDA 6.3 must be performed by a process auditor with appropriate professional experience and qualification in quality management (IATF 16949, ISO 9000 ff). We will provide you with this if there is no qualification or capacity available. Through an objective and external view of the present processes further insights can be gained.

PIAQ assures you that an internal audit is carried out in accordance with VDA 6.4 by auditors with long-term experience in the automotive industry.
