SOUTH FIELD, MI-The Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) announces that ISO/TS 16949: 2009 is available in an electronic format. Developed by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF), the ISO/TS 16949: 2009 standard, in conjunction with ISO 9001: 2008, defines the quality management system requirements for the design and development, production and, when relevant, installation and service of automotive-related products. It is applicable to sites where customer-specified parts for production and/or service are manufactured.

The revised ISO/TS 16949: 2009 standard does not introduce any new or changed requirements from ISO/TS 16949: 2002. The revision is based on the updates made to the ISO 9001: 2008 standard. Minor changes were made to ISO 9001 to provide clarification, greater consistency, resolution of perceived ambiguities and improved compatibility with ISO 14001, which relates to environmental management systems.

The new technical standard is available now in electronic format as an e-document from the AIAG Web site.
