Other Differences Between ISO 9000 And QS 9000Other Differences Between ISO 9000 And QS 9000

The QS 9000 standard was first released in August 1994. The worldwide demand for QS 9000 created the need for a second revision that was released in 1995. ISO 9001: 2008 is the latest version of ISO series and ISO / TS 16949: 2009 which has been framed in conjunction with ISO 9001: 2008 is the latest version of QS 9000 series. ISO / TS 16949: 2009 (revised from ISO / TS 16949: 2002) could be part of all organizations in the automotive supply chain.

QS – 9000 adds requirements for a business plan, tracking customer satisfaction and benchmarking to element 4.1 of ISO 9000, Management Responsibility. QS – 9000 also uses sector-specific requirements. The following requirements are mandated for QS 9000:
  • Process for production part approval
  • The necessity for gaining approval from the customer to run a new or altered part or process 
  • Continuous improvement
  • Automotive suppliers should ensure systems to be in place to organize and measure improvement activities take place for various business aspects
  • Manufacturing capabilities
  • Necessary elements for planning and effectiveness of equipment, facilities, and processes
  • Demand for mistake proofing, and tooling management
