The International Automotive Task Force (IATF) is constantly reviewing the impact of the coronavirus 2019-nCoV on the IATF 16949 certification scheme. First and foremost, our current top priority is the safety, and well-being of everyone involved in the IATF 16949 scheme. The impact on the global economy and, in particular, on the automotive industry is unprecedented. Each day brings new developments and we want to assure you that the IATF leadership continues to both monitor and address all the emerging situations regionally and globally as they occur.
The IATF is in close communication and working together to assess the next steps to be implemented from our contingency plan(s) and the IATF will make frequent updates to these extraordinary waivers as needed.
