IATF 16949:2016 Audit Checklist
This IATF 16949 audit checklist includes the automotive requirements (IATF 16949:2016 and ISO 9001:2015). The checklist is intended to be used as a tool to ensure your quality management system is in compliance with these requirements. It also includes the Sanctioned Interpretations (SIs) and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) issued by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF) as further clarification and guidance. The second sheet in the workbook is a helpful reference tool which lists the clauses where documented information and/or records are referenced and required.
The utilization of this checklist, when populated with objective evidence of compliance and non-compliance, will satisfactorily demonstrate you have audited the new requirements. It should be used with your certification body as evidence of internal audits to the IATF 16949:2016 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.
