Transition Strategy for IATF 16949:2016
In theory, individual organizations can go for transition audits no later than Sep 14, 2018. Nevertheless, the transition process involves audit report writing, NC verification and closure, report approval, certificate issuance, etc. Considering the continuity of certification, the IATF 16949 Transition Audit is recommended to complete earlier and no later than the end of June 2018.
The transition audit shall be equivalent to a recertification audit in audit days, with documentation review prior to the transition audit on the client’s QMS documentation, including the evidences about conformity to IATF 16949 requirements.
—- The evidence includes, but is not limited to, Quality Manual, Summaries of a completed Internal Audit and Management Review according to IATF 16949:2016. Meanwhile, the audit planning information, as usual, include at least the previous 12 months’ performance data (not necessary all after the implementation of QMS based on the new standard).
