Course Details:

2 Day, 13 Instructional Hours

Course Description:
This 2-day overview focuses on an in-depth review of the changes from ISO/TS 16949:2009 to IATF 16949:2016 and ISO the 9001:2015. The intent of the training is to provide information related to the transition from ISO/TS 16949:2009 to IATF 16949/ISO 9001:2015. These two documents in conjunction with customer specific requirements (CSRs) define the fundamental quality management system requirements for automotive suppliers.
