VDA 6.3 Awareness Training
This one day course will allow you to understand what VDA 6.3 is, its typical application, understanding results of the audit and links with other VDA publications. It is perfect for people that are audited or for organisations that are considering implementing VDA 6.3.
SMMT have been appointed by VDA QMC in Germany to deliver approved VDA 6.3 Process Audit training.
Developed by the German Automotive industry, VDA 6.3 defines a process based audit standard for evaluating and improving controls in a manufacturing organisation’s new product introduction and manufacturing processes. Revised in 2016, the standard was comprehensively restructured to reflect the changes to ISO9001 and IATF 16949 and customer specific requirements in the automotive industry.
The standard can be used by any organisation, either for internal process audits, or for evaluating potential or existing suppliers.
Compliance to VDA 6.3 is mandated by some vehicle makers and encouraged by others, in particular the German automotive industry.
The seminar will be delivered by one of SMMT’s approved VDA trainers.
