Auditing and auditor days
Transition audits from ISO/TS 16949:2009 to IATF 16949 require the same number of auditor days as a re-certification audit. Prior to the transition audit, a document review will be performed at a minimal additional audit time of 4 hours. The auditor can carry out this document review either on-site or off-site.
For this purpose, the organisation must provide the auditor with the following records and documentation:
- Quality management documentation (e.g. manual, process landscape, processes and procedures)
- Evidence of conformity to IATF 16949 (e.g. in the form of internal audit reports, delta analysis including action plans, etc.)
- Matrix or overview of linking of corporate processes, IATF 16949 clauses, and customer-specific requirements.
If the transition audit reveals a nonconformity with IATF 16949, this nonconformity must be documented in the nonconformity report and closed by the organisation within 60 days.
