How does TL 9000 certification work?
Once your management system is established, you can start the process of getting it certified with DQS. We will work with you to discuss goals of TL 9000 certification and get you’re a detailed quote tailored to the needs of your company.
Project planning begins with the schedule mutually agreed upon dates for your initial assessment(s) and coordinating multiple sites if applicable. An optional gap assessment can also be scheduled to help you identify the strengths and points of improvement in your management system in advance.
The certification process itself begins with review and evaluation of system documentation, goals, results of management review and internal audits. The Stage 2 Audit occurs after the successful Stage 1 Audit. Applying defined management system standards and specifications, the audit team will evaluate the effectiveness of all functional areas as well as all management system processes, based upon observations, interviews, review of pertinent documents and records, and other assessment techniques.
The independent certification function of DQS Inc. will evaluate the audit process and its results, and make an independent certification decision about issuance of the certificate. The client receives an assessment report, documenting the assessment results. When all applicable requirements are fulfilled the client also receives the certificate.
Either semi-annually or at least once per calendar year, there will be an on-site audit of the critical components of the management system. Strengths, Opportunities for improvement and findings if applicable will be identified, with a focus on continual improvement and sustained effectiveness.
At the end of this cycle, a reassessment will be carried out to ensure the ongoing fulfillment of all applicable requirements. Subject to this fulfillment, a new certificate will be issued.
