Fortis is happy to report we have completed the audit process for certification for the IATF 16949:2016 global automotive standard. This certification to the new standard will replace our previous ISO/TS 16949:2009 certification. Many requirements were added to the new standard and our team completed a tremendous amount of preparation in order to achieve the excellent results received. Intertek was very complimentary of all the associates they interacted with and were especially impressed we achieved these results during a transition audit to the new standard.
The IATF 16949:2016 certification is the new standard required by automotive customers and we are excited to continue to grow in this critical segment. At the same time we have updated our ISO 9001 certification and now are ISO 9001:2015 certified.
