IATF 16949 Transition Update

As indicated in the IATF 16949 Transition Strategy, all ISO/TS 16949 certificates will automatically expire on 14th September 2018, including any certificates in suspension status.

For those organizations that have not yet conducted a transition audit to IATF 16949:2016 as of 14th September 2018, an initial audit will be required.

In line with the IATF 16949 Transition Strategy, no Stage 1 Readiness Review is required as long as the initial certification audit to IATF 16949:2016 is conducted by 14th March 2019 (which is within 6 months of 14th September 2018). In this situation, the certification body is not required to request a waiver from the relevant Oversight Office. Please reference the IATF 16949 Transition Strategy, Revision 6 dated 13th June 2018 (see point D for transition timing requirements on page 13 and FAQ 20).
