What is IATF 16949® MAQMSR?

For automotive suppliers who are having a difficult time meeting the requirements of the new IATF 16949® quality standard, Minimum Automotive Quality Management System Requirements for Sub-Tier Suppliers (MAQMSR) may be an option you want to consider in conjunction with ISO 9001 certification.  MAQMSR was released in September 2017 as a possible intermediate step for a supplier’s Quality Management System (QMS) under the authorization of IATF 16949®, Section 8.4.2.3.c and Sanctioned Interpretation, SI #8.

MAQMSR aligns the Automotive QMS Requirements with the corresponding IATF 16949:2016 section(s). However, it is not certifiable or a third party auditable standard, though the guideline may be referenced during a second party audit *(by customer or with a qualified 2nd party like simpleQuE). SimpleQuE’s consultants and auditors are qualified to conduct the training and 2nd party internal audits required to issue a Letter of Compliance.  This letter is evidence to the customer that a company’s management system meets the requirements of the standard.  Compliance to MAQMSR can provide cost-saving options over certification to IATF®.
