Omega Plastics re certified against the newly released IATF 16949:2016

Following their certification back in 2016 for ISO/TS 16949, we have now been recertified against the newly released IATF 16949:2016 automotive standard to ensure that we are compliant with the significantly revised automotive standard.

Paul Anderson, group quality manager, explained:

“The International Automotive Task Force (IATF) has developed the revised IATF 16949 standard in partnership with manufacturers and suppliers operating in the automotive sector and engaged Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) members to ensure that the standard meets the demands of the sector’s key players.

“The new certification mergers standards from across Europe and the USA and details best practice requirements for designing, developing, manufacturing, installing and servicing in the automotive sector.

“Omega Plastics Group (OPG) has to undergo a full, third-party audit of its quality management systems and processes at Hartlepool, which took around seven days to complete and covered all of our procedures from materials being delivered, through the manufacturing process to delivery and customer satisfaction.

“This was a really intensive process so are delighted to have once again met the criteria to receive the accreditation. We’re currently one of the only manufacturers in the North East to have gained IATF 16949 so it’s something we’re incredibly proud of.”
