PPAP documentation - Submission required in English

#1
Hello,


Does anyone know if it is specified somewhere that PPAP documentation must be in English?
I know that Flow Chart/Control Plan must be in English.
I know that checking aids (control docs) can be in native language.
But i don't remember where/if this is specified in any norm/requirement (IATF, AIAG manual etc.).

If you look at IATF 16949:2016, Page 28, Clause 8.2.1.1:

Customer communication - supplemental

"Written or verbal communication SHALL be in a language agreed with the customer. The organization shall have the ability to communicate necessary information, including data in a customer-specified computer language and format (e.g., computer-aided design data, electronic data interchange)."

This PPAP language requirement should have been discussed at the contract review stage.

Hope this clarifies.
