Hi everyone,

Some questions came to me lately regarding the compliance of ISO/ TS 16949 by suppliers/ sub-cons for semiconductor industry.

1) What is the latest version of the Customer Specific Requirements
(ISO/TS-16949) Semiconductor Commodity? The one that I downloaded from Elsmar is released in year 2004, any newer version release?

2) According to clause 7.4.1.2.S, the change made for the 1st note, does that mean for foundries industries only?

3) My understanding regarding to the entire clause (7.4.1.2.s) is that we need to ensure our suupliers (foundry, assembly, test processes and/ or raw material suppliers?) to comform to ISO/TS -16949:2002, including the Semiconductor Commodity Specifics. It says "conform" in the clause, so it doesn't mean the suppliers must be ISO/ TS 16949 certified, am I right?

4) If the 2004 version is the latest version, then why it still requires the supplier to conform to ISO/TS -16949:2002?

Appreciate your help on the questions above.

:thanks: in advance!

Rgds,
Karen :)

The "semiconductor commodity" supplement was obsoletes several years ago - you can reference the AEC site on this: aecouncil.com/aecdocuments.html

Currently, semiconductor companies are required to follow the standard and any customer specific requirements. Some Tier 1 suppliers have developed their own semiconductor requirements documents.

Hi Kelly,

:thanx: for your reply, it does help a lot.
Perhaps now everyone is waiting for the new release - ISO 9001: 2015!

Hi Karen.
I agree with the post of Kelly.
That document is no longer active.
However, it can represent a helpful guide line to be followed. General semiconductor supplier requirements do not shift from the ones listed in that document.

Hi qusys,

Yes, in fact it's better to jz use 1 standard instead of 2 which has almost the same requirements.
Moreover, lately many of my customers have switched "focus" and asked for VDA 6.3 instead of ISO/ TS.
Anyway, :thanks: for the info.

Yes, VDA is strictly linked with ISO TS. It is request by German companies above all.
If you need info you can contact here o via message.

"Semiconductor companies are required to follow the standard": standard is IATF 16949 correct?

If IATF is flowed down in the PO, then yes. If not, then you could use the basic ISO9001 standard, in my opinion.
Any product which is used in an automotive product (according to the IATF 16949 Rules may qualify. Doesn't need to be in the PO, and there are specifics now, in IATF 16949 which go beyond the basics of ISO 9001 which can be very important, especially if the semi-conductor is supplied programmed...
