ISO/TS 16949 - International Automotive Standard

> overview

ISO/TS 16949:2009 specifies the quality system requirements for the design and development, production, installation and servicing of automotive related products. There are also customer specific requirements that are required by individual subscribing vehicle manufacturers. 

In conjunction with ISO 9001:2008, ISO/TS 16949:2009 is an ISO Technical Specification, which aligns existing American, German (VDA6.1), French (EAQF) and Italian (AVSQ) automotive quality systems standards within the global automotive industry, with the aim of eliminating the need for multiple certifications to satisfy multiple customer requirements.
