Conformity with IATF 16949 is the condition for acceptance into the automotive manufacturers‘ list of suppliers. In preparation for certification, 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. According to ISO 19011, auditors are required to continually improve their competence. This includes their professional development, for example, through self-tuition and qualifications. Thus, certificates are only valid for a certain amount of time, so that auditors will have to undergo further education to retain their qualification.
This re-qualification focusses on an exchange of experiences and updating knowledge and abilities of auditors. Main topics are the contents of ISO 19011, IATF 16949 and their requirements, including ISO 9001, as well as areas that are often lacking in implementation. Additionally, participants may put forward their own topics on the implementation of IATF 16949 for discussion.
Concept and Methods
During the training, technical lectures and group exercises will alternate in order to facilitate transfer of the studied topics into the participants’ own work experience. A special focus is placed on the exchange of experiences among the participants and the trainer. The IATF 16949 standard and ISO 9001 family of standards must be brought to the training by the participants.
