QIC Protech is a recognized body from SMMT (one of the IATF oversight) for IATF 16949 certification.

International Automotive Task Force (IATF) is a group of Automotive Manufacturers and their respective National Automotive Industry Associations, formed to define, establish and maintain a system for the management of Quality System in the Automotive Supply Chain worldwide for cars, components, and parts.  IATF has created five Oversight offices located in France (IATF France), Germany (VDA-QMC), Italy (ANFIA), the United Kingdom (SMMT), and the United States of America (IAOB) to administer the IATF registration scheme.IATF 16949 certification ensures that the quality management system requirements of automotive production which includes design, development, production, fabrication, assembly, and installation, are effective and consistent throughout the automotive supply chain. Automotive core tools such as APQP, PPAP, FMEA, SPC and MSA are some of the recommended tools for process analysis and control which assists in making the planned quality system robust and effective.
