DEMONSTRATE YOUR COMMITMENT TO RELIABILITY AND QUALITY
Automobiles are immensely complex machines comprising many complicated components. Ensuring and maintaining consistent quality throughout the entire manufacturing and servicing process is essential. Hence, automotive parts manufacturers must be certified according to the standards of IATF 16949 and/or VDA 6.1, while automotive service providers should fulfil a higher standard VDA 6.2 and tool/machine manufacturers should obtain VDA 6.4 certification.
WHAT IS VDA 6.X?
The VDA 6.X Quality Management System certification is an extension of ISO 9001 for the automotive industry as required by automotive manufacturers in Germany.
Both the IATF 16949 and the VDA 6 certifications share their roots in the ISO 9001 Quality Management System. The VDA 6 is classified into two areas; management and products & processes.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
While IATF 16949 and VDA 6.1 are only mandatory for automotive manufacturers, VDA 6.2 is required for automotive service providers and VDA 6.4 is required for automotive tool and machine manufacturers. By implementing the VDA 6.X programme, your company is able to commit to a long-term goal in consistently meeting and exceeding your customers’ expectations. Beyond increasing organisational efficiency and product quality, adhering to the certification requirements could minimise waste and errors, which thereby could improve overall productivity.
