Plastic Industry Forum - Converse with Plastics Processing Leaders / Business / Upcoming Changes to TS16949 (automotive) Certification
Posted:  27 Feb 2017 15:03
We just completed our TS audit and was advised by our auditor of the changes with the new system which will be live in 2018.  A large change is that all of our suppliers will now have to to TS registered and  you have to audit them to this standard if they are not - length of audit depends on the number of employees.
Are other MAPP members being told the same thing?  How are you handling this major change.

In February I attended a week long class on the new ISO 9000:2015 and IATF 16949 standards. The TS requirement for suppliers has been in place for several years but not really enforced. Questions concerning this during the class said they did not see any changes in this regard. As plastic part producers many of our suppliers are resin producers or distributors.  These suppliers are not going to get IATF certifications. May need to get the documentation that proves we had to use this certain resin as required by our customers to show that was our only option for a supplier
