We demonstrate our commitment to manufacturing and business process integrity by adhering to the most demanding standards for international quality certification. Since 1998, all NXP® manufacturing centers across world have maintained ISO 9001 certification—the international reference for best practices in quality management.
To achieve ISO 9001 certification, companies must:
Manufacturing operations, automotive business units and support processes are additionally certified to IATF 16949; this technical specification aligns existing U.S., German, French and Italian automotive quality system standards within the global automotive industry. External certification audits verify our compliance with ISO 9001 and IATF 16949 requirements. Because quality, sustainability, health and safety and an active concern for the environment go hand in hand, our manufacturing sites are also ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 certified. Sustainability Certifications and Environmental Certifications.
Attention: IATF COVID-19 Certificate Extension Information
The IATF has approved a global extension to all currently issued and valid IATF 16949 certificates to prevent the automatic expiration of certificates if a recertification audit could not be conducted due to reasons directly related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Although all certificate expiration dates were extended 6 months in the IATF database, that does not mean that all recertification audits are automatically extended 6 months.
With this major change in direction, the IATF requires that audits due from 1 January 2021 forward be conducted onsite or remotely and the certification body can no longer apply the conditions and waivers described in the previous revisions of this document. Special conditions apply if the organization is not operating or is not manufacturing automotive products when the audit is due.
The extension of six (6) months (i.e. 183 calendar days) to every currently issued and valid certificate (including those certificates that are currently in the status of suspension) will be reflected in the Global IATF Database and subsequently visible in the IATF Certificate Validity Check.
In this extraordinary situation the IATF-recognized certification bodies are not required to reissue the certificates immediately. This document together with automated updates to the IATF Database and the IATF Certificate Validity Check are providing the evidence that the certificate is valid beyond the documented expiration date printed on the certificate.
Once NXP has completed the necessary assessments, new certificates will be uploaded to this site.
