Standard-based Material Testing: Do your Analyses Fulfill Current Requirements?

Many users are currently being audited for the first time according to the new versions of ISO 9001 and IATF 16949. These are IATF 16949:2016 and ISO 9001:2015. The deadlines up to which work could be carried out according to the previous versions of the standards elapsed almost simultaneously on September 14th, 2018 (ISO 9001) and September 16th, 2018 (IATF16949).

Both standards are characterized by the fact that, compared with their predecessors, they place increased demands on the performance of measurements and tests. These intensifications are reasonable. By following these rules, the risk of giving “incorrect” results is significantly decreased. Such errors can have considerable consequences such as accidents resulting in damage to material and personnel, product recalls, etc. A logical system for avoiding incorrect results must therefore be welcomed.

The key points of the standard requirements are outlined in this paper. Compliance to the cited standards ensures working according to the state of the art. It is beneficial to be able to prove this in the event of damage or loss. Learn more in this informative whitepaper!
