In October 2016, the International Automotive Task Force (IATF) published a revised automotive industry standard to replace ISO/TS 16949:2009. The ISO 9001 requirements are now published separately from the new IATF 16949:2016 requirements, however they remain the foundation for the new automotive standard. As of October 2017, audits will no longer be conducted for the old ISO/TS 16949 and all certifications to this standard will expire in September 2018.

NWIRC’s new IATF 16949 Internal Auditor 3-day course covers requirements of both standards, including the new IATF 16949 requirements for internal auditors regarding core tools and customer-specific requirements. The first of several IATF 16949 training courses is planned for June 13-15, 2017 in St Marys. See details and register (and watch for future courses) here.
