Conformity with IATF 16949 is the condition for acceptance into the automotive manufacturers‘ list of suppliers. In preparation for certi cation, those responsible in an organisation must come to grips with the concrete implementation of requirements. IATF 16949 auditors’ competence is of decisive importance: on the one hand, because they have to implement the IATF 16949 requirements in their own organisation in a focussed manner and evaluate the effectiveness of quality management actions. On the other hand, so they can review their suppliers as to whether their QM system complies with IATF 16949. In this three-day training, the participants get to know the requirements of the two standards IATF 16949 and ISO 9001, receive information how to interpret them and what they must actually do to implement these requirements successfully in their organisation.
