VDA - IATF16949 - Upgrade Training for 1st/2nd Party Auditors for Re-qualification
BACKGROUND AND TOPICS
Conformity with IATF 16949 is the condition for acceptance into the automotive manufacturers’ list of suppliers. In preparation for certification, those responsible in an organisation must come to grips with the concrete implementation of requirements.
IATF 16949 auditors’ competence is of decisive importance: on the one hand, because they have to implement the IATF 16949 requirements in their own organisation in a focussed manner and evaluate the effectiveness of quality management actions. On the other hand, so they can review their suppliers as to whether their QM system complies with IATF 16949.
According to ISO 19011, auditors are required to continually improve their competence. This includes their professional development, for example, through self-tuition and qualifications. Thus, certificates are only valid for a certain amount of time, so that auditors will have to undergo further education to retain their qualification.
This one day re-qualification has been developed for IATF 16949 1st / 2nd party auditors who already have a certificate, but not enough practice in auditing, or who have comparable IATF qualification and simultaneously sufficient auditing practice. In both cases, it is necessary to take part in the examination day for re-qualification of 1st / 2nd party auditors (ID 255) in order to receive a certificate.
This workshop focusses on an exchange of experiences and updating knowledge and abilities of auditors. Main topics are the contents of ISO 19011, IATF 16949 and their requirements, including ISO 9001, as well as areas that are often lacking in implementation. Additionally, in a moderated discussion, participants may put forward their own topics on the implementation of IATF 16949.
CONCEPT AND METHODS
After a short keynote speech, the trainer will moderate the discussion between the participants. A special focus is placed on the exchange of experiences among the participants and the trainer.
