Quality management system
for the automotive suppliers according to
ISO/TS 16949 and VDA 6.3
Beyond the requirements of ISO 9001, the automotive industry has defined additional requirements to suppliers. Separate standards like the QS 9000 (American automotive industry), the VDA 6.3 (German automotive industry), the EAQF (French automotive industry) or the AVSQ (Italian automotive industry) have been developed.
In 2002, these requirements have been merged in the international standard ISO/TS 16949:2002. All suppliers should have at least one certified quality management system according to ISO 9001 and fulfil the requirements of ISO/TS 16949 beside specific requirements of customers.
