Is IATF accreditation necessary?
Can you please confirm if the ISO certification would be a sufficient qualification for SME’s to produce 3D parts for automotive OEM’s for the aftermarket supply.
In *** (and I’m sure globally also), creating local jobs through is number one priority.
Using new technology such as 3D printing is one area where I see great potential.
The plan is to create jobs for SME’s to supply Automotive 1st and 2nd tier OEM partners with car components.
In order to supply parts to 1st tier OEMs for example, which accreditations do the SME’s NEED to have in order to meet the stringent automotive quality standards for supply and is this different if we use 3D additive manufacturing to ‘print’ parts? We are exploring this in depth with 3D supply partners and I need to be clear about the requirements to see if this plan to engage SME’s is feasible or not.
Must SME’s have AIFT16949 accreditation or would ISO 9000 be sufficient. What are the approximate costs and timeframe in meeting the minimum requirements.

Discussion regarding CSR
If FORD CSRs are available on Iatf global website but organization does not received any intimation from Customer regarding the same. Is it come under the criteria of Major or Minor NC?
I want to buy the documents but I have 1 question before that. I am not sure that we should include or exclude the design process. We don't design the parts but we do design the tooling for the parts.
