IATF 16949:2016 Gap Audit Checklist
This IATF 16949 gap audit checklist includes the new automotive requirements (IATF 16949 and ISO 9001:2015). The checklist is intended to be used as a tool to identify both compliance with the new requirements and the differences between IATF 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 IATF 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 is intentional that this checklist has no page numbers. From a process audit approach, you may wish to rearrange pages from this checklist to group them based on your own QMS processes to demonstrate a process approach. The process audit approach doesn’t tie questions to just a single clause of the standard. The best approach is to group questions from different clauses of the standards against the QMS processes you’ve defined (whatever names you call them). When using this checklist, you can determine where these requirements apply to your specific processes and process approach.
The purchase of this gap checklist comes with a free half hour of phone or email consulting. Instructions are sent when purchasing the checklist.
