General Motors is now requiring certification bodies to enter the manufacturing DUNS number (i.e. supplier code) into the IATF Database for any supplier shipping directly to GM Components Holding (GM CH).   GM CH is a subsidiary of General Motors.  This change will help the GM GQTS system recognize the supplier as having a valid certificate to ISO/TS 16949 (or the new IATF 16949).  GM has updated their Quick Reference Guide for this change – see below
