Hi,

I have found different sources explaining what is a Major/Minor explanation, however in IATF 16949 I have not been able to find the definition.

Where would I find an "official" definition of Minor/Major non-comformity?

Re: IATF 16949: Definition Major/Minor Non-conformtiy

This is my own best suggestion:

IATF 16949 Rules & Definitions


Major Non-Conformity

· The absence of or total breakdown of a system to meet and IATF 16949 requirement
· A number of minor non-conformities against one requirement can represent a total breakdown of the system and thus be considered a major non-conformity
· Any non-conformity that would result in the probable shipment of non-conforming products. A condition that may result in the failure or materially reduce the usability of the products or services for their intended purpose
· A non-compliance that judgment and experience indicate is likely to result in the failure of the quality management or to materially reduce its ability to ensure controlled processes and products

Minor Non-Conformity

· A failure to comply with IATF 16949 that, based on judgment and experience, is not likely to result in the failure of the quality management system or reduce its ability to ensure controlled processes or products. It may be one of the following:
[FONT=&quot]o [/FONT]A failure in some part of the client’s quality management system relative to IATF 16949
[FONT=&quot]o [/FONT]A single observed lapse in following on item of a company’s quality management system

Opportunity for Improvement

· A failure in some part of the client’s quality management system relative to IATF 16949
· A single observed lapse in following one item of a company’s quality management system

As it seems you've already discovered, the IATF "Rules" document contains the official definitions for IATF 16949.

Not really, but maybe I found a source that did.

Would you have a link for that document? I was not able to google that.
