Is IATF 16949 needed for fuel systems manufacturing company?

We are a manufacturing company that builds CNG Fuel systems for Class 8 trucks. The chassis comes with an engine designed by Cummins to accept CNG fuel in place of diesel.

Our part of the vehicle build is to build and install the fuel cell and components necessary to deliver the fuel to the engine.

We do not fall under the chassis or engine warranty. Therefore, would we fall simply under 9001 or do we have enough involvement in the vehicle design and build to need 16949?

First of all, the product you produce is mounted on the OEM vehicles such as cars, trucks, buses, etc. so you can apply for IATF 16949 certification. If you are designing products besides production activity, design and manufacturing must be clearly defined in your IATF 16949: 2016 scope. 

If your customer to whom you sell the product requires you to obtain an IATF 16949: 2016 certificate, then you should apply for certification, and your quality management system must be ready for assessment. 

If your customer does not have a request in this regard; you can apply for an IATF 16949:2016 certificate at your own request.
