IATF 16949 Training Courses for the Automotive Industry

Bywater is a leading provider of IATF 16949 training courses and the world’s only training provider to offer CQI and IRCA Certified Internal QMS Auditor training, based on IATF 16949.

We have been working with automotive quality standards and companies in the sector since before QS-9000 was launched in 1994 as the first multi-company global standard for the automotive industry.

As the standard developed through ISO/TS 16949 to the current IATF 16949, it continues to be used internationally by IATF members in combination with ISO 9001:2015 as the core requirement for supplier approval and auditor qualification.

IATF 16949:2016 defines the requirements of a Quality Management System for organisations supplying the automotive industry and is intended to be used by organisations of any size.  It enables harmonisation of the various supplier assessment and certification systems across the entire automotive supply chain.
