ISO/TS 16494 is changing. What do I need to know?

On August 9th 2016, IATF ran a Press Release to inform us of a new international standard to be released. In October 2016, IATF 16949:2016 will supersede and replace ISO/TS16949:2009.

All organizations currently certified to ISO/TS 16949: 2009 will need to successfully transition to the new standard by September 14, 2018.

  • Find out more information on the transition process here.
  • See more guidance on the transition from ISO/TS 16949:2009 to IATF 16949:2016 from the IATF Oversight here.
  • ISO/TS 16949 is based on ISO 9001, encouraging a process approach. Get a head start and prepare for the transition by utilizing our ISO 9001:2015 Resource Center. (USA)
