AIAG encourages automotive executives in China to join representatives from AIAG, General Motors, and the International Automotive Oversight Bureau (IAOB) to hear what changes in the new standard mean to suppliers and when certification needs to be completed. Register now to attend the official roll-out of IATF 16949:2016 on December 14, 2016, from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm at the Marriott Hongqiao Hotel in Shanghai.
IATF 16949 — published by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF) and unveiled in North America late September at the AIAG Quality Summit — is one of the industry’s most widely used international standards for automotive quality management. By late 2018, more than 65,000 supplier sites (primarily Tier One and Tier Two direct-part manufacturers) will be certified to the quality standard, which will require a physical audit and recertification by an approved IATF third-party certification body. Non-compliance could result in suspension of a supplier’s quality certification and limit the supplier’s access to new business opportunities.
In the Automotive Standard Update session, attendees will hear about the changes — and why they were made — directly from members of the IATF 16949 revision project team. Scott Gray: Member of the IATF 16949 Revision Team and Quality Program Director, AIAG; JoAnn Bastik: Member of the IATF 16949 Revision Team and Quality Engineer, General Motors
In the Certification Rules Session, important changes to the Rules for Achieving and Maintaining IATF Recognition will be explained. The revisions to these rules affect both the Certification Body (CB) and the site wanting to become certified. Sam Chen: General Manager of IATF, Beijing Administrative Office, IAOB, China
In the Transition Strategy Update, guidance on navigating the constraints on the transition process will be shared with the attendees. Sam Chen: General Manager of IATF, Beijing Administrative Office, IAOB, China
Attendees will also get the latest information on tools and training courses offered by AIAG to support the suppliers in successful transition to IATF 16949.
