ISO 9000 Plants Top NA IQS as French Deadline Reported

The J.D. Power and Associates 2003 IQS showed that the initial quality gap between "Domestic", European, Japanese and Korean brands continues to narrow. Domestic brands are now equal with the Europeans and only 9 PP100 behind the Japanese. This report examines the potential impact of QMS implementation and registration on Domestic 2003 IQS numbers. Information is also provided on the issuance of a letter by PSA Peugeot Citröen that establishes 2004 deadlines for ISO/TS 16949:2002 registration that match those reported by Renault and DaimlerChrysler. Tables are included that provide snapshots of OEM requirements for Tier 1 and other suppliers.
