I can't find anything in this forum about this "trial" ISO standard called TR16949, but if it is somewhere in this forum, let me know. I saw an article in Quality Digest (web version) where Steve Walsh (Ford) is quoted as saying that this ancillary document to ISO 9000 is an international automotive standard (it is currently out for review) and that suppliers will have a choice to be registered to either QS9K or TR16949. Has anyone else heard about this and is there any more information on it. This seems like a "bombshell" concept, but it was tucked away at the very end of the article.

I talked to someone who heard from the horses mouth as recently as Monday of last week, that the b3 intend on replacing QS9K with IS0-16949. I have a copy of this and it is not significantly different from QS. It is an attempt by the international automotive makers to have one automotive quality standard. So it combines all the VDA-6s and European standards into one automotive standard. Not a bad idea eh? The BIG bombshell came when he also told me the b3 wants to be the only registrar!!!! The Independant Association of Accredited Registrar's (IAAR) is fighting this of course, but the b3 want this to be the gospel by the beginning of 1999!!! He said he would pass along the minutes from that meeting so I can see for myself what was discussed.

Christian = I do hope you keep us informed.

Any chance of getting a copy of the draft you have?

I'll have a few more comments when I get a few minutes.

ROGER - You can find out what's in any forum. Look at the upper right of the page where the PREFs and such is. This new software version does have a SEARCH function . It's pretty fast and easy.

A dumb question perhaps, but are you saying that Le Grand Trois want to be the people who are registering firms to this standard? If so, that is a bombshell!!! It seems that they are hard-pressed to keep up with the questions about QS from their suppliers! How in the world would they hope to register suppliers? This is another case of "Truth is stranger than fiction" in the automotive world. This sure does bring up a lot of questions (if things are panning out this way).
By the way, Marc, I did see the Search function after I posted this (I just didn't edit my message). Thanks. This is a great forum.

No that's not a dumb question, because it seems so hard to believe. Yes the b3 are the one who want to registrar firms. It is the contention of the b3 that the registrar's "screwed up" QS-9000. Many firms that have no business being certified are being certified. This I agree with. The b3 also talked about "blessing" a couple of the more reputable registrars and giving them exclusive rights to registrar companies. Unfortuatly, the registrars they mentioned are the ones I hear the most complaints about, and they have been mentioned several times on this forum! These "reputable" registrars are very big and have a lot of money to buy those rights from the b3.

Marc- I'll keep ya updated. The draft document is pretty long and it was faxed to me so it wont fax well, but if you want "e" me your address and I'll send it to ya.

It doesn't really surprise me with consideration to the money involved. I have never hesitated to say the QS thing has nothing to do with quality. Look what Dan Reid and the gang did with the Plexus thing. It has to do with money to the big 3. With consideration of registrar fees, I sure would like to be the only company allowed to register companies to QS. Jeez - probably make nearly as much as they do making cars - if not more!

They may 'blame' the registrars for 'screwing up QS9000' but they wouldn't take the heat for the crappy cars they build when the Japanese started to gain repeat customers - they BLAMED the Japanese for THEIR problems (my 1989 Mazda 626 just turned over 260,000 miles, by the way, with NO major repairs - best car I ever owned).

Registrars did not 'screw up' QS9000. The big 3 released a book of their 'common' requirements (and the latest and 'greatest' is no better in my opinion) which needed endless interpretations (and still does) to'explain'. In short QS9000 is a hack, has been, and still is. Can you imagine if all your customer requirements (and QS9000 is NOTHING MORE THAN a Customer REQUIREMENT) required pages upon pages of interpretations. The interpretations even needed interpretation! What does that tell us?

So - the big3 are expanding their business scope to include 'registrations'! I guess GM can't get rid of their 'extra baggage' so they may as well find jobs for them! Sounds like millions of cash money dollars (and yen and marks and pounds, etc) to me! Wonder how I can get a cut!!!!

Well, enough diatribe. I gotta pack so I can leave town right after I finish classes tomorrow. want to get home and 'holiday' with everyone else....

I just got done reading TR16949 and, for a while, I thought I was reading the 3rd edition of QS9K! However, it does have some interesting differences. I am not as aware of the other European standards, but apparently this document got some of its requirements from those standards. It is still hard to believe that they want this document applied by 1 Jan 99 and that the Big Three want to be the auditors!!!! Also, can it really be true that suppliers will have a choice between this document and QS9K (according to Steve Walsh) for registration?

Hey Marc!
The forum idea is just great. PS did you get any work from the Benz folks in Japan? They are strangely quite over there....

How can a simple guy like me get hold of a copy of the ISO (TR) 16949? Is this going to blow up in our faces later this year? I'm right in the middle of a major rewrite of all our documents in order to conform to the Third Edition. Think I should wait a bit? Or just keep going?
Thanks for the great site, you're such a big help to us all.
PS some pic at the top... 8=)

Never heard from them - no surprise.

I have no idea where to get a copy. Let us know if you find one.

I would bet things will be stable for a year or two.

well I have dredged through the copy, and don't see where the big three will be doing the registration, just that AIAG will control..(as they do now?) or am I missing something? Perhaps that was implied, and discussed elsewhere?

Looks similar ..... no great surprises there, just a few interesting notes.
Still hard to conceive that jan 99 will be the date of doom. who are the registrars of choice? Probably the ones that messed it up the first time....

Is the January 1999 date heresay or has someone seen it written somewhere? Am I missing something (which is likely)?

I see it is 'labeled' a "technical report".

Comments?

The only thing I know for sure is what I read in Quality Digest magazine. That is where I read Steve Walsh's comments on TR16949 (my first message in this thread). Since then, I have heard several individuals say various things, such as the implementation date of 1 Jan 99. I haven't seen anything else confirmed as of yet. I suspect the "TR" will come off when it has been reviewed and considered "auditable". Walsh said that would happen in November. Recently, I heard that only Ford was going to adapt it (for the near term). Welcome to the QS/ISO free-for-all...

looks like a viable replacement...an improvement actually......It will be interesting to see how it is phased in. As long as there are no exclusivity rights to registrars I'll embrace it

Since my first response to Roger's original posting, I have obtained the minutes from the meeting held 8/25/98 where the B3 first dropped this bombshell. It is all true about what the B3 plan to do. Nothing has been decided since then, but I will be sure to post anything that I see documented concerning their decisions.

What meeting was held on 8/25? Was this an AIAG meeting, ASQ meeting, or a B3 meeting with suppliers? It is interesting that one hears about these things through meandering communication lines (although I suspect that Christian has a straighter connection than others). An application date of 1 Jan 99 doesn't give suppliers much time to respond. I agree with Barb that the document looks like a good one, but in the ISO standards world, a turn-around time of 6 months (from the time I first heard about it anyway) seems almost like a time warp. Usually ISO likes to study these things for a lot longer time than this.
Areas like the B3 being the auditors (along with a select few others) and the fact that this document seems to merge QS with VDA6 more, take time for a supplier to assimilate (intellectually, let alone to one's Quality System). Should we have a folder for this new standard? 1 January is just around the corner...

This reminds me of the Plexus meeting a while ago. It's a matter of how close you are to the source. When this topic was posted I immediately e-mailed my 'close group'. One fellow wrote back saying "Yeah - we've been working on it for a while new" (note that 'while' was not defined). He sent me the copy that is posted.

Man - we must be pretty far down the feed chain. I'm trying to find a publication which catches these 'incidents' early.

Well, it's been a year now since this thread was started. How long you figure it will take QS9000 to die? Comments anyone?

By the way - the ISO folks e-mailed a bitch so the posted document was removed. Sorry about that!

Marc:
Question #1 = Is that "Da Cheech Wizard" as it appears in National Lampoon magazine?

Reply #1 = I think that QS will be ending very soon, Chrysler is obviously going to go with ISO 16949 the perfect mixture between the US QS and the German VDA, why would GM and Ford continue to waste money and support 2 seperate standards that say basically the same thing?

Reply #2 = Why is the ISO group so touchy? Is it because they have become so out of touch with this ISO 9000:2000 that they had to bailed out by the automakers? Give us a break ISO.

QS and all of their interpretations has been a real source of agony for me. When I first heard of TR16949 I almost had a panic attack. But after having read it, I thought it read better than QS. At any rate I have three Question 1)I'd like to know more about the "Plexus Thing" The Wizard spoke of.I have an opinion here but think I should save it so not to stomp on toes! 2)Who are the Registrars you were refering to? And 3)What is the opinion of UL as a registrar?
Thanks for the Input!

The Plexus 'thing' is at Elsmar.com/plexus.html

I'm not sure which post your 2nd question is asking about (registrars.

Stay away from UL as registrar unless you're a masochist.

Thanks for the "Plexus Deal" it was very enlightening to say the least. I still will refrain from voicing my opinion on this. But from what I understand we are looking into other options.

there have been 30 registrars 'blessed' if you will.......to date. Criteria seems to be in numbers, not qualifications....1st requirement is to have 100 registered QS clients.
So what does that tell you?

I beleive it's all about politics and the all mighty buck. Maybe I should be putting as much time in to researching how to play the game as I have the rules of the game.I don't mean to sound like a B**CH, but today I'm feeling the part. The politics has really gotten to me. Anyone have suggestions, because I'm open at this point.

Has been from the beginning and hasn't changed except Dan Reid took the brass ring KPMG was holding out. Another winner was (is) Alex Chong and the Plexus franchise. And let us not forget the AIAG and other related 'organizations'.

I agree with you,Jackie -- to a point. It shouldn't be that way but it is.
Maybe it's time that we "the customer" have more input on what is required of these standards; ISO/QS/TR among others. I would suggest a BETA test , something like you would do for a new software program. Maybe a random sampling from each state. Those selected could then solicit ideas from other businesses within the state. Maybe then we could add some value to an otherwise value-less the process.

Was anyone out there in attendance at the AIAG roll-out of ISO16949 on December 13? I was scheduled to attend but was ill that day. I would like to get some notes from someone who was there, since AIAG won't ever release their presentation slides to the public. Possibly someone knows where there is a web page with this info?

Hey Sam:

Many big companies do get in on the process. For example, Motorola was heavily involved in the last QS9000 update as well the more recent Semi-Conductor Sector update - they had a lot of input. Just like in government decisions, big business is there orchestrating (at least to some degree).

I was at the TS rollout 12/13/99 and I have been "chosen" TS champion for my company, so I have been very close to this topic recently. A few of things I have "heard" -- the rumors came from reliable sources:

- The chosen registrars was purely political. It is a fact that the registrars with the 6th most QS registrations was not on the list. They have ~700 QS registrations.

- (Fact) Of the registrars I spoke to, NONE of them know or will say how they made the list. The registrars that did not make the list do not have a clue why they did not make the list.

- (FACT) The B3 never published the criteria for choosing registrars or auditors.

- (Rumor) Registrars not chosen are considering bringing a class action against the B3 for restraint of trade. Because they never made clear the criteria for selection of the registrars.

- (FACT) More registrars will be added to the TS party. Remember in 1993 when QS first came out and the B3 only belessed 5 registrars to perform QS audits? Well we know how that turned out!

- (FACT) There is a TS meeting in late January 2000 exclusive to registrars (all registrars are invited). I believe this is where they will find out how to get on the list.

- (FACT) The TS rules for registrars has not been finalized. Accredited Registrars have a higher power to answer to and the rules for ISO and QS have been in place for years. The rules for TS registrars are still in draft format, therefore the "approved" TS registrars are approved under a draft document!!!!! What is worse is that the EA (European Co-operation for Accreditation) disagreed with the latest Draft!!

Some of the above can be verified at the webpage chosen for the governing body for TS: www.IAOB.org -- Some links are conveniently "unavailable"

The reason for the "approved supplier list" of registrars is a matter of control. IMHO the B3 thought that the proliferation of registrars, including ones that did not meet their standards was getting to the point something had to be done. Politics plays a part in this decision, I'm sure, but this is in reference to a major shift of power from the RAB/RvA accreditation bodies to the b3. If there is some litigation, that will be the jist of it...just who's supposed to be in charge of the the ASL for Registrars?

As I know IATF is on the way of updating ISO/TS16949 to ISO900:2000.
Have they finished their decision of registrars selection? Who are the winners?
Can anyone guess who might be the selected regitrars?

I attended a "Top 100 Suppliers" mtg. for Ford last week and they disclosed hat TR16949 is definetly an either/or to QS9000. They were also kind of discouraged that copies were not as yet available to us and A.I.A.G. was none the wiser.

I'm not sure why the Big 3 is discouraged about the lack of availability of TR16949. I thought that it had been available for some time now. Do they mean that the auditor qualifications are not available? Also, are the customer requirements for Ford and Chrsyler been published yet?

I work for a multi-national producer of automotive and truck parts, and would be very interested in obtaining copies of any non-US customer letters stating a requirement for registration to ISO-16949. Our fax number is (217) 431-8934.

As you can see from this LONG, LONG thread, there are some folks that have letters from mostly non-US automotive companies that state the requirement for TS16949.

The letters I have say that the OEM's want to work according, or are willing to accept registration instead of their national registration. There is no obligation.

I know I started this thread, but I didn't think the thread would grow into a size 50 sweater! Anyway, it is interesting that, as Howard pointed out, the requirement for TS16949 has started (although I have never heard of that car manufacturer - I'm not much of a car connoisseur)! Maybe, they're opening the door...
