All Global MPA facilities are IATF 16949 certified or currently in the certification process.
On 2016, IATF 16949 was published by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF) and together with ISO 9001 superseded and replaced the ISO/TS 16949, defining the requirements of a Quality Management System for organizations in the automotive industry.
Developed by IATF with an unprecedented level of industry feedback and engagement of the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG), IATF 16949 is an exacting standard that is a required certification for supplying parts to many of the world’s leading Original Equipment automotive manufacturers.
The IATF 16949 standard was designed to help manage quality and process efficiency, while providing for continuous improvement, emphasizing defect prevention and minimizing waste generated by the automotive industry supply chain.
