ISO/TS 16949 Certified

ISO/TS 16949 used the ISO 9001 Standard as the basis for their development and included the requirements from these Standards with specific 'adders' for the automotive supply chain. The 2009 revision of TS builds off the ISO9001:2000 document.  The basis for the certification audits for ISO/TS 16949 include the standard itself, customer specific requirements and the organization's quality system.

What is ISO/TS 16949?

The result of the IATF's effort is the ISO/TS 16949 specification. ISO/TS 16949 forms the requirements or the application of ISO 9001 for automotive production and relevant service part organizations.

As an ISO/TS 16949 certified company, Georgia Plating is committed to meeting and maintaining the rigorous standards that are necessary to do business today and in the future.

Where did ISO/TS 16949 come from?

Beginning in 1994 with the successful launch of QS 9000 by DaimlerChrysler, Ford and GM, the Automotive OEM's recognized the increased value that could be derived from an independent quality system registration scheme and the efficiencies that could be realized in the supply chain by commonizing system requirements.

In 1996, the success of these efforts led to a move towards the development of a globally accepted and harmonized quality management system requirements document. From this, the International Automotive Task Force (IATF) was formed to lead the development effort.

Can anyone get ISO/TS 16949 Registered?

No!   There are criteria that must be met and earned by a company wishing to become ISO/TS 16949 Certified.  Georgia Plating has met the criteria as specified, and is proud to be ISO/TS 16949 Certified.
