Process Audits VDA 6.3

Since April 2016, a Swedish version of “Process audit VDA 6.3” has been developed. In December 2016, a new edition of VDA 6.3 was issued, which is basically the same method as in the 2010 version, but where a number of changes have been made regarding both the audit process and detailed requirements.Among other things, the following has changed:

  • Content adapted to IATF 16949: 2016. 
  • Principle understanding  (Procession, Risk Management, Communication and Target Focus) has been completely removed
  • The number of questions has been reduced to 58 (from 60)
  • Some relocation of questions has been made.
  • The valuation of questions has been made equivalent. All issues are valued equally.
  • Software management has been included in
    The Swedish edition of the 2016-year version is complete after translation and is available for ordering via the webshop.

Product Audits VDA 6.5

Product audits serve as a tool for management in an independent evaluation of products from the customers’ point of view and to ensure that complaints do not arise from deficiencies in products and their properties. Product audits also indicate opportunities for continuous improvement.

In a product audit, the product’s specified properties (ie, conformity with spare parts list; product dimensions; material; functionality; reliability; packaging; ID) and expectations from customer in specified conditions (packed ie; product as new; after use; etc.) are checked.

Product audits VDA 6.5 describes the scope of use of a product audit and proposes management of an audit program. Significant audit activities are explained, together with requirements for competence for the personnel involved in the implementation of product audits.

The book is on 36 pages and has the following content.


Chapter / SectionContent
3Implementation of product audit
4Program for product audits
5audit Plan
6Implementation of product audits
8Corrective measures
8.1Immediate action
8.2Knowledge transfer
9Qualifications for audit planners and auditors

We also carry out internal company-adapted or open education in the application of VDA 6.5. 

VDA 6.2, Additional requirements for Service companies

VDA 6.2, Additional Requirements for Service Companies, is a standard developed primarily for companies that provide services to the automotive industry, such as service, calibration, product development or process development. It is based on the requirements of ISO 9001: 2015 and on the requirements of IATF 16949: 2016 and was updated in July 2017. Companies that supply products that are part of a passenger car or truck must, in accordance with the requirements of the automotive industry, meet the requirements IATF 16949: 2016 or in some cases VDA 6.1 which is equivalent to the German standard for vehicle management systems. VDA 6.2 lacks the equivalent.


Companies that provide services to customers with high demands and who want to go beyond the requirements that are found in ISO 9001: 2015 can advantageously develop their management system so that it meets the requirements of VDA 6.2. It is primarily designed with a focus on the automotive industry, but other industries may also apply these requirements. The standard is currently certifiable via certification bodies in Germany.

The book, which is now translated into Swedish, is 50 pages and has the following additional requirements:



Marketing and processing of markets of requirements and product safety for services plans – Supplement – Supplement and traceability from measurement and monitoring
7.2.1Competence -Addition
7.3.1Awareness – Add-ons with customer – Supplement Satisfaction – Supplement of internal audits

Extensions (Troubleshooting Methods)

Below are some examples of content and additional requirements that service-providing companies can benefit from introducing, even though they are not requirements in ISO 9001, but which are included in VDA 6.2


7.2.1 Competence -Addition


All personnel working within the company or at an external workplace must receive instructions regarding new or changing processes / work routines; such instructions must be documented


7.3.1 Awareness -Addition

Awareness of quality, and in particular commitment to meeting the quality objectives and the attitude within the organization, should be promoted and continuously improved by management and employees


7.3.2 Staff satisfaction

To achieve quality goals, for continuous improvement and to create an environment that promotes innovation, the organization should establish, promote, and monitor personnel satisfaction. Appendix

Methods for problem solving

The organization must have a defined process for solving problems. 

This process will result in the identification of the cause of the error and in their elimination.

In total, this standard compares to 50 larger or smaller additional requirements compared to ISO 9001: 2015.


IATF 16949

IATF 16949 is the vehicle industry’s demand for its suppliers and is a development of the previous standard ISO / TS 16949. IATF 16949 is based on the requirements of ISO 9001 in the 2015 version, but the automotive industry (IATF; VW, BMW, Daimler-Mercedes, PSA, GM , Ford, Chrysler-Fiat, Renault) also has extended requirements for:

  • Risk management ( central)
  • Supplier control
  • product Secure
  • Products with built-in software
  • Internal audits
  • Requirements for supplier assessment
  • Competence

IATF 16949 is available from 1st of October on English (can be ordered from among others VDA-QMC in Germany or SMMT in England ) and since 1st of January also in Swedish and can be ordered via form on our website. We are investigating the possibilities of distributing an electronic version which will hopefully be available during Q2 2017. WEDEAQ Scandinavia AB has sales and distribution rights for the Swedish version of IATF 16949: 2016 and we cooperate with SIS Förlag AB regarding distribution of this product. 

​MLA – Ensuring maturity of new products​

Degree of maturity for new products (securing of) is a method for evaluating risks in development projects. The first edition was published in Germany in 2009 and 2018 a new version and revision of the content was made. It is now translated into Swedish and will be available for sale at the beginning of Q2.

The method is based on a traffic light system for evaluating conditions in seven parts (degrees of maturity, ML) as follows:



ML 0

Innovation release for complete production development

ML 1

Handling of requirements for issuing contracts

ML 2

Determine the supply chain and issue orders

ML 3

Release of technical specifications

ML 4

Completion of production planning

ML 5

Articles from production tools and production premises are available

ML 6

Process / authorization

ML 7

Project completion, transfer of responsibility to production. Start of recalculation.

Securing the degree of maturity is a control method within project management that is initiated by OEM or by a customer. By applying specified rules, such as “round table” calls, where the supplier of products and the customer’s internal organization work together at an early stage of the process for product realization. Unnecessary extra work can be avoided when the elements in ensuring maturity are constantly consciously integrated at an early stage in the project management.


By applying a structured process that links the status of defined evaluation conditions to associated degree of maturity, which in turn is oriented towards milestones in an overall project plan, determined by the vehicle manufacturer, the agreed quality for the product to be delivered is ensured.
