Getting IATF 16949 certified

My company "own brands" and / or distributes products, many of which we then supply to the automotive industry. We don't "manufacturer" (in the literal sense of the word) anything; all manufacture is done by our suppliers. But some of automotive customers would like us to be 16949 certified. I have been led to believe that, because we don't (really) make anything, we cant get this certification. Your view?

Answer:

Clause 1.1 of IATF 16949 defines to what organizations it can be applied. The standard can be applied to sites of the organization where manufacturing of customer-specified production parts, service parts, and/or accessory parts occur. It cannot be implemented in the organization that doesn't perform at least one of these activities because IATF defines requirements for design, production, assembly, installation and services of automotive products, including products with embedded software and if the organization doesn't perform some of these processes, the standard cannot be implemented.
