ISO/TS 16949 Certs. Expire Sept 14, 2018 November 2016

on . Posted in IATF 16949

ISO/TS 16949 certificates expire Sept 14, 2018 and the push is on as automotive suppliers work to upgrade their quality management system before the deadline. Since IATF 16949:2016 consists of only automotive requirements, suppliers  need a copy of ISO 9001:2015 to fully update their QMS.

ASR is reaching out to its clients to schedule transition audits.  A transition audit replaces a client’s regularly scheduled recertification or surveillance audit.  The transition audit is equivalent to a recertification audit which is a full system audit addressing all requirements of IATF 16949:2016 and ISO 9001:2015 and begins a new three-year audit cycle.

A key transition point for clients is a requirement to submit updated QMS documents to ASR prior to the start of the transition audit for an off-site documentation review.  These documents include quality manual, updated/new procedures and evidence about conformity to IATF 16949.   Failure to do so results in an additional 4 hours to the site audit to allow the auditor time to collect and review the requested documents.

Valuable information addressing the IATF 16949 transition process can be found by going to AIAG  ( and the IATF website ( for the IATF transition strategy document.

Contact ASR if there are questions regarding IATF 16949, the transition process or the scheduling of your transition audit.
