    Hi all

    I am not native to English. I faced with a problem about the concept of the title of clause 4.4.1.2 “product safety” in IATF 16949. I have seen the term “safety part” in PSA documents such as Q63 1000 many times.

    So, my question is that:

    What is the right meaning of “product safety”? Does it mean “safety part” or “safety of product”?

    Thanks all for your knowledge sharing.

    In the definitions on page 14: "standards relating to the design and manufacturing of products to ensure they do not represent harm or hazard to customers"

    Usually, the OEM tells us the part is Safety related. Brake systems and components are Safety because the customer may be injured if the brakes fail. The drawing will have an inverted delta.

    Hello johnnymo77, i hope you can help me. I have a concern, if my company is a paint supplier (We don´t design and don´t manufactur the product) the customer design and manufactur the product and send to us to paint and we send to them back, do we sould have a product safety procedure or related documentation?

    Thanks for your support.

    Are you seeking IATF 16949 Certification?

    I know very little about painting, so it's only my opinion...

    I can imagine a painted part getting hot and creating bad fumes.

    I think you should ask your customer. They should know and tell you.

    They should have specified the paint and painting process with safety in mind. That may be why they have not told you.
