The Corporate Approach - Benefits of Working with one Certification Body for IATF audits

Date: Tuesday, August 13, 2019

Time: 11:00 am - 12:00 pm ET (1600 - 1700 BST)

Your Host: BSI Group America

About this event

During the recent transition to IATF 16949, many Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers found that their quality management system was not operating as efficiently as it could. Multiple certification bodies were providing conflicting audits and inconsistent requirements added to the audit burden.

Having one certification body assessing all your sites and remote support locations helps to increase the effectiveness of your management system, reduce audit duration and cost, while maximizing consistencies.

On August 13, 2019, at 11:00 AM ET, join BSI’s Global Automotive Sector Champion, Rob Brown and Business Development Manager Kim Kottmeier as they discuss how numerous automotive suppliers are now benefiting from this approach.
