Gap analysis

Following updates to TS requirements in 2016, LRQA's IATF 16949 gap analysis service assesses your existing quality management system against the newly-published IATF 16949 standard to report on the compliance of your current system and help you to define a certification plan as necessary.

Certification & assessment

IATF 16949 applies to the design and development, production, installation and servicing of automotive-related products. The updated TS standard was developed in collaboration with the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) and replaces ISO/TS 16949 with all organisations now required to have implemented the revised management systems in line with current IATF 16949 requirements.

As one of a limited number of recognised certification bodies with SMMT approval, LRQA provides IATF 16949 certification services at a global level.

Integrated assessment

If your organisation implements several management systems – ISO 9001 (quality), ISO 14001 (environmental), ISO 45001 (occupational health and safety) and ISO 27001 (information security) – you may benefit from a single coordinated assessment, avoiding duplication and lowering costs.

Assurance services

Certification doesn’t end at IATF 16949: LRQA offers accreditation, validation and verification assessments aligned to globally-recognised standards across health and safety, environmental, sustainability, energy management, business continuity, cyber security and many more.

We maintain our impartiality by proactively managing conflicts of interest across all LRQA businesses including those which may exist between consultancy and third-party certification services. Click here to learn more
