MCT Awarded IATF 16949:2016 Quality Standard
19 December 2018
MCT are very pleased to announce that we have been awarded IATF 16949:2016 status.
What is IATF 16949:2016?
This is the global technical specification and quality management standard for the automotive industry. Based on ISO 9001:2015, it was published in October 2016 and replaces ISO/TS 16949. It is designed to be used in conjunction with ISO 9001:2015 and contains supplemental requirements specific to the automotive industry rather than being a standalone QMS.
It brings together standards from across Europe and the US. IATF 16949:2016 outlines everything you need to know about achieving best practice when designing, developing, manufacturing, installing or servicing automotive products.

Recognition as a world-class automotive supplier
Integration with other management system standards
Demonstrates quality and continual improvement to the heart of the organization
