We work with the automotive industry to produce and continually improve safe and reliable products that meet or exceed customer and regulatory authority requirements, on time and at a reasonable cost.

Most organisations operating in the automotive industry are required to register to TS 16949 which was developed by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF).
The IATF is a group of automotive manufacturers and their respective trade associations, formed to provide improved quality products to automotive customers worldwide.

The IATF members include:

BMW Group, Chrysler Group, Daimler AG, Fiat Group Automobile, Ford Motor Company, General Motors Company, PSA Peugeot Citroen, Renault SA, Volkswagen AG, AIAG (U.S.), ANFIA (Italy), FIEV (France), SMMT (U.K.), VDA (Germany).


We are recognised worldwide as the "Automotive Registrar" and have issued the largest number of TS 16949 certificates in China, the fastest growing automotive market.
Our clients span the entire supply chain and all component parts including mechanical, electronics and software. 

We have trained and certified brands like Aston Martin, Jaguar Land Rover, Lola, Lotus and McLaren for quality, environment and health & safety management.

Our auditors have extensive knowledge and direct experience in automotive manufacturing and our technical experts are actively engaged with the SMMT Oversight who administer the IATF certification scheme.


In addition to TS 16949 certification, we provide a range of services that you to run more efficiently, safely and securely. From energy and environment to health and safety and information security management.


IATF recently released ‘The Rules for Achieving and Maintaining IATF Recognition - 4th Edition.’
This document details the requirements for how certification bodies and certified suppliers need to interact to achieve IATF recognition and ISO TS 16949 certification.

These changes have important implications if you have or are aiming to achieve TS 16949  – see more detail about Rule 4 changes here.
