VDA Auditor Qualification


Increased customer expectations, safety requirements, statutory requirements as well as the increased use of electronic components and software lead to more complex products.

End customer expectations can no longer only be determined in specifications. Automotive manufacturers and the supplier industry must identify these product characteristics independently and transfer them into the products. This focus must also be taken into account when conducting product audits.

Meanwhile, product quality is assured by consistent implementation of preventive quality planning methods. For this reason, product audits not only have the task of assuring quality, but also of providing evidence.

Within the process chain, product audits are expected to highlight the quality level of the internally / externally manufactured products.
