AIAG to Introduce ISO 9001 and 14001 Auditing Courses

December 10, 2008

SOUTHFIELD, MI, December 10-Beginning in 2009, the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) will introduce lead and internal auditing courses for ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.

ISO 9001 is the global benchmark for providing assurance about the ability to satisfy quality requirements and to enhance customer satisfaction in supplier-customer relationships. ISO 9001: 2008 specifies requirements for a quality management system and requires an organization to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide product that meets customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. It also aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including continual improvement.

If you have an ISO 9001-based quality management system, the following courses will prepare your internal and lead auditors to become a valuable part of your business management system.

  • RABQSA-Certified ISO 9001 Internal Auditor Training
  • RABQSA-Certified ISO 9001 Lead Auditor Training

    ISO 14001 specifies requirements for an environmental management system to enable an organization to develop and implement a policy and objectives which take into account legal requirements and other requirements to which the organization subscribes, and information about significant environmental aspects. It applies to those environmental aspects that the organization identifies as those that it can control and those that it can influence. It does not itself state specific environmental performance criteria.

    ISO 14001 is applicable to any organization that wishes to establish, implement, maintain and improve an environmental management system, to assure itself of conformity with its stated environmental policy, and to demonstrate conformity with ISO 14001. Learn how to use environmental methodology and tools to help your organization drive continuous improvement in the following auditor courses.

  • RABQSA-Certified ISO 14001 EMS Lead Auditor Training
  • ISO 14001 EMS Internal Auditor Training
