In response to questions from the IATF recognized certification bodies and stakeholders, the following questions and answers were reviewed by the IATF. Unless otherwise indicated, Frequently Asked Questions are applicable upon publication. An FAQ is an explanation of an existing requirement within IATF 16949:2016. FAQ 1 - 11  issued in month of October 2017 . FAQ 12-20 issued in month of April 2018.  IATF - International Automotive Task Force IATF 16949:2016 --- Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)  www.iatfglobaloversight.org Page 2 of 19   NUMBER IATF 16949 REFERENCE QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS 1 Foreword  –   Automotive QMS Standard QUESTION: Why are there two manuals (IATF 16949:2016 and ISO 9001:2015)? Two manuals instead of one manual makes it much more difficult to read and understand the requirements.  ANSWER: The IATF and ISO were not able to reach a licensing agreement to publish IATF 16949 in an integrated document. In order to not further delay the launch of the new IATF 16949 standard, the IATF decided to publish in a two-manual format. Prior to release, the IATF did confirm with international accreditation organizations that other industry sectors use a two-manual format model to define their sector specific requirements, and auditing with the two-manual model, while not optimal, is effective. The IATF maintains strong cooperation with ISO by continuing the liaison committee status ensuring continued alignment with ISO 9001. 2 Foreword  –   Automotive QMS Standard QUESTION: Why are the two manuals (IATF 16949:2016 and ISO 9001:2015) so much more expensive than the ISO/TS 16949 version?  ANSWER: Without the co-licensing agreement between ISO and the IATF for the integrated format of IATF 16949, the IATF was not able to negotiate a discount for the ISO 9001:2015 standard. The IATF kept the price of the automotive specific content consistent with prior pricing. Essentially, the difference is the full list price to ISO for their publication of ISO 9001.  IATF - International Automotive Task Force IATF 16949:2016 --- Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)  www.iatfglobaloversight.org Page 3 of 19   NUMBER IATF 16949 REFERENCE QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS 3 Foreword  –   Automotive QMS Standard QUESTION: What should be done if translation errors are discovered in the IATF 16949 standard?  ANSWER: The IATF uses a defined process for managing translations of the standard, including “cross -checking ”  the translation to ensure accuracy. If an organization, or a certification body, identifies what is believed to be a translation error, they should contact either the IATF member industry association or the Oversight Office supporting their certification body. 4 Product safety QUESTION: What is the scope of this clause? Many organizations focus on regulatory/statutory requirements of the product and do not believe they have product safety related manufacturing product or processes.  ANSWER: This clause focuses on product and manufacturing process characteristics that affect the safety performance of the final assembly. These characteristics may not be directly addressed in regulatory/statutory requirements, but may be defined by the customer.  IATF - International Automotive Task Force IATF 16949:2016 --- Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)  www.iatfglobaloversight.org Page 4 of 19   NUMBER IATF 16949 REFERENCE QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS 5 5.3.1 Organizational roles, responsibilities, and authorities —  supplemental QUESTION: Is the intent that responsibilities be assigned to the function (e.g. Quality), a specific title (e.g. Quality Director) or a named individual (e.g. Bob Smith)?  ANSWER: Responsibilities are assigned to the role/position (i.e. specific title, Quality Director) within the organization. Although individuals may have those responsibilities in their roles, the responsibilities remain with the role (e.g. Quality Director). Therefore, top management will assign the responsibility and authority to the role, not to the individuals by name. 6 Measurement system analysis QUESTION:  Are MSA studies required for each instrument or device?  ANSWER: No. A complete statistical study on each single piece of equipment is not required. Instruments with the same characteristics (e.g. measurement range, resolution, repeatability, etc.) can be grouped and a sample instrument (representative of the gauge family) can be used for the statistical study.
