  • Uploading current quality standards/results

    I have a question. If a company has the 16949 certification do they have to upload their current quality standards/results as I understood they did previously. I want to choose a supplier who states they have the standard so I want to find their data. The company is called C*** in China.
  • Should trainer be certified with IATF certification body?

    I understand the company vying for IATF 16949 certification need to show competence on the 5 core quality tools. Does it mean that the trainer of these tools should be certified to any IATF body offering the training? Or can a well experienced quality professional do the training making sure the company staff are competent to these 5 core tools. I see no clause in requiring the trainer's qualification in the 16948 standard hence I believe it is OK not to be trained from a trainer from any IATF body.
