As an IATF 16949:2016 Stakeholder we feel it’s important that you have the opportunity to feedback your views. Here is your chance, via an optional and anonymous IATF survey. The surveys are divided up by IATF 16949:2016 sections to enable you to give your comments in relation to the specific sections of most interest to you or the sections that you feel still require clarification. These surveys will be used to compile data on any requirements needing further clarification through Sanctioned Interpretations (SIs) or Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). Your input will also be considered as part of any future revision to the Automotive Quality Management System Standard IATF 16949.

You may partake in all survey sections, or just participate in those where you see specific concerns. Additionally, the larger sections of the standard are divided up into sub-sections and you may select those individual sub-sections.

Each survey has two levels of menus to drill down to the clauses for feedback. Those surveys with more than one section (for example, sections 1 through 4 of the IATF 16949 standard) first have a selection menu to select sections 1 through 4 for feedback. The next level will take you to the individual clauses (for example 4.3.1). Surveys with one section (for example section 7), will allow selection from 7.1, 7.2, etc. Then the drill down will be to individual clauses, such as It is not required to provide feedback on all clauses of a section, or even all sections. Completion of feedback on one clause will take you back to the menu to select the next clause requiring feedback. Large organisations may cascade the survey throughout their teams for individual responses.

Demographic input is required for each survey completed. By participating in the survey, the stakeholders are agreeing to provide their demographic information (limited to your anonymous role in the IATF 16949 certification scheme – Certification Body, Vehicle Manufacturer, Supplier, etc., and global region of operation). This information will only be used for trend analysis and data sorting.

If you have any questions, please contact us. This survey will be open until 5th August 2019. Responses received after that date will not be included in the analysis.
