Preparing for the 3rd Party IATF Audit: How to Satisfy the IATF 3rd Party Auditor?

Join our live webinar as we help to familiarize you with the questions you can expect from a 3rd party IATF auditor.

IATF 16949 audits very often cause a lot of stress at any automotive supplier. The stakes are high as failing the audit would impact their good standing with buyers and influence the buyers’ perception of the organization’s readiness for new business, resulting in potential business holds or more.

Wouldn't knowing exactly what the IATF auditors would concentrate on be a great advantage to you? All IATF auditors follow the same audit structure and have a mandate to cover the prescribed content. If you set up your QMS in such a way that top management, your internal auditors and process owners follow the same approach as the IATF auditor, no special preparation is needed and your QMS should pass an audit with no issues.


The objective of this webinar is to familiarize the audience with the questions they can expect from a 3rd party IATF auditor. The content will cover the expectations and evidences that an average IATF auditor would search for in an audit. It will also cover common pitfalls and misunderstandings that clients may experience during the 3rd party IATF audit.
