What are the Benefits?

  • Identify the changes in the revision of the standard and how these could affect their organisation’s quality management system
  • Will have developed a thorough understanding of the IATF 16949:2016 requirements in order to assist in either the implementation of the standard or the transition from ISO/TS 16949:2009
