IATF 16949 certification costs

#1
Hi

I am curious to find out costs related to resources used for IATF 16949 certification purposes. From the moment a business employs consultants / contractors and their own internal resources up to the point of certification, excluding certification body and auditing costs. An approximate figure would be fine. Also I am interested on the size of the business (i.e. number of employees) to get a perspective.

If there is such a thread already please point me in the right direction and close this one.

Many thanks in advance.

Good day lgdfv, welcome to the Cove!

I regret to inform you that there is no reliable way to give you a clear set of expected costs to certify to IAF 16949.

There are so many variables, such as:
  1. Your current level of preparedness (primary)
  2. Costs of consultant(s) to help you bridge gaps (secondary)
  3. Costs to implement what the consultants recommend (tertiary)
  4. Costs of the registration (this does not vary as much as #3 but involves CB fees and auditor fees and travel costs, which do vary)
I could give you a spreadsheet to add these up, but I suspect you could add them up as quickly with a commercially purchased calculator.

I hope this helps!
