The IATF is inviting IATF 16949 certified organizations to participate in providing feedback on the Rules 6th Edition draft.

Feedback on IATF Rules Ed6 Draft


IATF Rules 6th Edition Draft

The IATF has completed the draft of the Rules 6th Edition – a major revision of the current Rules 5th Edition. The official version is expected to released later in 2023.

The IATF Rules requirements are binding on the IATF-recognized certification bodies, such as DQS, but there are also some requirements that should be understood by any organization certified to IATF 16949. From time to time, some IATF 16949 certified organizations express their opinions on the certification rules. Now you have the opportunity to access the draft Rules Ed6 and provide feedback directly to IATF before it is finalized.

The IATF is inviting IATF 16949 certified organizations to participate in providing feedback on the Rules 6th Edition draft. Your organization’s opinion matters, and your responses help IATF to improve the readability and practicality of the requirements.
