PEP are pleased to announce that we have recently upgraded our ISO TS 16949 accreditation to the new IATF 16949 2016 certification. This also includes an upgrade for our ISO9001 certification to ISO9001 2015.
Our Quality Assurance Manager Zib Sosnowski commented:
‘From my quality assurance perspective I have to say that implementing IATF 16949 2016 was a great step forward for our company. It has been a big challenge, it is not easy to step up to this standard, even from TS 16949, but in most cases the automotive companies are driven by customer requirements and striving towards improvements, so taking this direction is indispensable.
Upgrading the quality management system to IATF sounds expensive, but it is not. It is not difficult to demonstrate a correlation between the implementation of the standard and an increase in benefits of managing customer specific requirements’.
I would like to thank all of the people who have been involved at PEP to manage or assist with the conversion to IATF from the TS certification.
