New certification – sitronic perfectly equipped for the future

Those who want to be active on the level of the market leaders in the automobile industry in the future absolutely need the new international certification IATF 16949:2016. sitronic has it.

Previously, automobile manufacturers and their suppliers had their quality in the supply chain and production processes confirmed via the certification standard ISO/TS 16949. Now the new certification IATF 16949:2016 takes its place.

The objective of the new IATF certification is to increase customer satisfaction; early detection and eradication of errors and risks within supply chains and production processes. Thus the new standard puts special focus on avoiding errors from the beginning instead of alleviating them after they occur.

Measures that promise improvements hold a special value: They should be tested for efficacy in advance pursuant to IATF 16949:2016. Thus the new certification standard ensures that corrective actions are actually effective.

Companies must prove adherence to the new certification IATF 16949:2016 at the latest from September 2018 to continue to have access to the largest automobile manufacturers in the world. They require the standard for cooperation.

sitronic already fulfills this standard, nearly a year earlier than required, thus making a positive impression of readiness for the future.
