    1)We are under going IATF16949 certification audit by LRQA from 11th to 14th of June 2018 to replace ISO/TS16949. During Purchase department audit on 12th, the auditor asked me to show the Supplier development process for which, I have shown the Risk analysis which is carried out at the time of Initial Supplier site audit. But the auditor expects other processes which demonstrates Performance issues, second party audit findings etc.

    2)Is it necessary that all the approved suppliers will have the IATF16949 certificate in future?

    Request some one to clarify.

    Thanks & regards,

    From a practical stand point, supplier performance can be a risk, depending on what's being bought. So what the auditor "expects" may not be much of a risk - for example, fasteners can be bought from many sources. So you should clarify what the auditor is "expecting" compared to what's appropriate for your organization. In a previous life, I had to be single sourced - to the ONLY supplier in the World!

    And, no - it clearly states in the requirements what's "required". ISO 9001 certification by an IAF accredited body. IATF 16949 can't be achieved by some suppliers, so it CAN'T be IATF!

    In my view, Supplier development programs shall be evidenced in following ways
    1. Supplier engagement programs - Cluster forming etc
    2. Supplier second party audit calendar, reports and corrective actions taken at their end
    3. Mistake proofing / KAIZEN carried out at supplier end
    4. Upgradation program from ISO 9001 to IATF
