A new UK automotive certification service offering has been introduced by Intertek, a provider of Total Quality Assurance. The recognised and often mandated standard within the automotive supply chain, ISO/TS 16949, was replaced in October 2016 with the International Automotive Task Force IATF 16949:2016 standard to reflect the fast changing requirements in the sector.
Intertek Business Assurance UK today announced it is accredited to certify against this standard, which is considered an essential requirement for any business operating across the automotive supply chain. In addition, Intertek offers a range of further automotive testing and certification services, including training and gap analysis as well as assurance services related to product quality and safety, to enable businesses to compete and differentiate their offering within the global automotive supply chain.
Lucie Janicatova, General Manager, UK Business Assurance at Intertek said: “Intertek Business Assurance offers a range of automotive testing, certification and assurance services to help accelerate the viability and safety of products across the supply chain. Intertek has a long track record in this sector providing a high level of technical expertise, a customer-centric approach and can add strategic value to leading automotive industry businesses through its Total Quality Assurance offering, and we are delighted today to extend the certification service to the UK market” Lucie added.
Intertek’s automotive testing facilities are conveniently located across the UK and also in the major automotive markets around the world.
