SRC Automotive® Quality Policy
By creating and adhering to a documented quality management system, SRC Automotive®, Inc. strives to enhance customer satisfaction internally and externally, reduce non-conformities and promote an environment in which employees are aware of the ways they, as individuals, contribute to the meeting or exceeding of SRC Automotive's® quality objectives.
To reach these goals, SRC Automotive® continually improves its quality management system with an emphasis on process improvements, adherence to requirements and safety of employees and products.
ISO/TS 16949:2009 is an ISO Technical Specification, which aligns existing American (QS-9000), German (VDA6.1), French (EAQF) and Italian (AVSQ) automotive quality systems standards within the global automotive industry, with the aim of eliminating the need for multiple certifications to satisfy customer requirements..
Together with ISO 9001:2000, ISO/TS 16949:2009 specifies the quality system requirements for the design/development, production, installation and servicing of automotive related products. In addition, there are customer specific requirements that are required by individual subscribing vehicle manufacturers.
ISO/TS 16949:2009 was developed by The International Automotive Task Force (IATF), in conjunction with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
The IATF consists of an international group of vehicle manufacturers - BMW Group™, DaimlerChrysler™, Fiat®, Ford Motor Company®, General Motors Corporation™, PSA Peugeot-Citroen™, Renault™ and Volkswagen™. opening the way for Japanese vehicle manufacturers to join IATF in the future.
Organizations in the automotive supply chain should already be working to transfer across to ISO/TS 16949:2009, in line with their customer timescales for certification.
