IATF 16949:2016 Clause by Clause


This course covers the changes to the requirements and the compliance expectations of IATF 16949:2016. The IATF 16949:2016 emphasizes improved risk management with stated areas of risks to be considered throughout the clauses.

The standard fully respects ISO 9001:2015 structure and requirements, seamlessly adding the additional and supplemental requirements unique to the automotive sectors in the relevant areas.

This means IATF 16949:2016 is not a stand-alone quality management system (QMS), but is to be implemented with ISO 9001:2015.

An organization wishing to transition to IATF 16949:2016 will first need to perform a gap analysis and address actions to close gaps between the current QMS and IATF 16949.

This 2-day course will provide the knowledge required for key QMS personnel to interpret the standard requirements and provide clarity on the new and enhanced requirements of IATF 16949:2016.

The goal will be to effectively use the gap analysis to identify actions required, implement the changes and prepare for a successful re-certification.


At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Review and gain knowledge on the key changes within IATF 16949:2016, with focus on implementation         and compliance to the changed or revised requirements
  • Get clarification of IATF 16949:2016 structure, terminology and concepts and alignment to ISO                       9001:2015  clause-by-clause requirement
  • Clause-by clause interpretation on new and enhanced requirements
  • Additional focus on Risk-based Thinking across clauses
  • Perform a gap analysis via class activities & identify actions to implement changes and prepare for re-             certification


This course is suitable for QMS and process owners that are responsible to ensure effective transition and certification to IATF 16949:2016.
