A smooth transition to IATF 16949:2016

International Automotive Task Force - Transition Strategy ISO/TS 16949 to IATF 16949

IATF 16949:2016 was published in October 2016. The publication of the certification rules followed in November 2016. Organizations will need to integrate and implement the changes in their quality management systems prior to the transition audit. Auditing and auditor days for transition audits from ISO/TS 16949:2009 to IATF 16949:2016 require the same number of auditor days as a re-certification audit.

The transition phase to IATF 16949:2016:
End of the certification validity period is September 14, 2018. Assuming all preconditions are fulfilled (proof of organization’s conformity under IATF 16949:2016, qualification of certification auditors and so on). If the transition audit reveals a nonconformity with IATF 16949:2016, this nonconformity must be documented in the nonconformity report and closed by the organization within 60 days.
