Frequently Asked Questions
The revised version of IATF 16949 has been aligned with ISO 9001 and was developed and released under the sanction of ISO/TC 176, the ISO technical committee responsible for developing the ISO 9000 series of standards and guidance documents. IATF 16949:2016 is organized along the same eight-element structure as ISO 9001, with a clear emphasis on customer requirements.
There are about 130 additional requirements in IATF 16949 certification. Many of the additions clarify rather than impose additional requirements. A progressive organization could easily interpret ISO 9001:2015 and do all the things required in IATF 16949.
