VDA 6.3 auditors for automotive quality

Fastenings manufacturer and distributor TR Fastenings (TR) has been training members of its quality team to be fully certified VDA 6.3 auditors. The certification means the team can now assess suppliers and supplier products against the standard, which is increasingly being used throughout the automotive sector.

In recent years, TR has noticed an increased focus among its automotive customers on the German VDA 6.3 standard, which looks more at the quality of specific products and components than the management of overall systems or businesses. In response, TR has invested in specific training for its supplier quality managers, resulting in them being fully certified to assess products and suppliers against VDA requirements.

The auditors at TR will be responsible for assessing suppliers’ products, documentation and processes to ensure that VDA standards are being adhered to. In addition, they and the rest of the TR team remain committed to ensuring that dialogues about customer and industry requirements are being held at all appropriate levels and acted upon accordingly.
