Per the AIAG web site ( https://www.aiag.org/quality/iatf16949/iatf-16949-2016 ),

"One of the automotive industry’s most widely used international standards for quality management, ISO/TS 16949, is evolving with the publication of a new global industry standard by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF). This latest version was developed with an unprecedented level of industry feedback and engagement by AIAG members representing North America.


ISO/TS 16949, a technical specification for automotive sector quality management systems, has become one of the most widely used international standards in the automotive industry, harmonizing the different assessment and certification systems in the global automotive supply chain.


On October 3rd, 2016 IATF 16949:2016 was published by the IATF and supersedes and replaces the current ISO/TS 16949, defining the requirements of a quality management system for organizations in the automotive industry."


Per the International Organization for Standardization web site (https://www.iso.org/standard/62085.html ),

"ISO 9001:2015 specifies requirements for a quality management system when an organization:


a) needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, and


b) aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.


All the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 are generic and are intended to be applicable to any organization, regardless of its type or size, or the products and services it provides."
