The Automotive QMS Specification is ISO/TS 16949:2009


What is ISO/TS 16949:2009?

ISO/TS 16949:2009 is the leading international quality management system specification in the automotive industry. ISO/TS 16949:2009 is based on ISO 9001:2008.

ISO/TS 16949 specifies the quality system requirements for the design and development, production, and where relevant, installation and servicing of automotive-related products. "First-tier" supplier registration to ISO/TS 16949:2008 is specified by all major automotive OEMs. ISO/TS 16949 is simple and easy to understand, connects the quality management systems to all other business processes, and includes enhanced compatibility with an ISO 14001 environmental management system, if needed (e. g., by Ford Motor Company in Q1).

ISO/TS 16949 requires

  • A process approach, supported by procedures for quality
  • Focus on the customer, not just customer satisfaction
  • Continual improvement, not just corrective/preventive action

We take the time necessary to custom fit all applicable ISO/TS 16949 requirements to your organization. No "consultant" is as willing and able as ISO Systems to take the time to build a QMS to both reduce your costs and "pass the audit," guaranteed!

At ISO Systems, we always offer No-Nonsense Pricing, all expenses included.  "Consultants" normally charge more than we do, and provide less than we do. ISO Systems is a smaller business... dollar-for-dollar, we provide more support! We welcome comparison!

ISO Systems proven, proprietary implementation and training methods assure your organization meets all ISO/TS 16949 requirements in minimal time and at lowest cost.

Your organization is very busy... everyone wears more than one hat. Time to implement a quality management system is often limited. We take less time to get you certified/accredited. Quality system implementation is a "team sport..." however, if your organization does not have the time, we can deliver a turn-key system, guaranteed to get you certified/accredited.

Our methods never include one-size-fits-all, "cookie-cutter" approaches. ISO/TS 16949 quality systems requires process approaches, customer focus, and continual improvement. You cannot get that from a cookie cutter. Most importantly, our quality management systems improve your bottom line. "Cookie cutter" approaches do not work, and only add cost.

When we leave, the quality management system is yours, not ours. We provide all the knowledge and experience your organization needs to effectively manage and improve your certified QMS in the future. When we are finished, your organization owns your ISO/TS 16949 quality management system.

ISO Systems is our association of experienced, creative, enthusiastic quality professionals committed to building and improving quality systems while permanently reducing quality costs.
