IATF Provides Limited Transition Insight

Two months after publication of ISO 9001:2000, automotive suppliers are waiting to see what the future holds. In response to questions posed to the "Big Three" members of the IATF and Harold Hodder of the IAOB, THE OUTLOOK was provided with the most recent IATF communiqué, dated October 4, 2000, along with some additional information. The communiqué indicates the IATF members will revise TS 16949:1999 to align with ISO 9001:2000 by March 2002, have no plans to revise QS-9000, VDA 6.1, EAQF94 and AVSQ94 to be based on ISO 9001:2000 and will permit combined registration to ISO 9001:2000 and TS 16949:1999, although separate certificates will be issued. An examination of the statements in the IATF communiqué and additional information from the "Big Three" members is presented.
