The automotive quality standard has come a long way since its first inception in 1994. With the new standard and more than 200 changes, simpleQuE recognized the need for an IATF Gap Audit Checklist to assist companies with the transition. The checklist includes the new automotive requirements (IATF 16949:2016 and ISO 9001:2015) and is intended to be used as a tool to identify both compliance with the new requirements and the differences between ISO/TS 16949:2009 and the new requirements.
The utilization of this checklist, when populated with objective evidence of compliance and non-compliance, will satisfactorily demonstrate you have audited the differences between ISO/TS 16949 standard and the new requirements. It should be used with your certification body as evidence of internal audits to the new IATF 16949 and ISO 9001:2015 requirements. It’s one of the methods simpleQuE auditors and consultants use with our own clients.
A free half hour of phone or email consulting with a simpleQuE expert is included with the checklist for the purchase price of $300.
The simpleQuE team wishes you a smooth and simple transition!
