Yes, TLP’s quality systems are certified to both ISO 9001:2015 and IATF 16949: 2016. We have maintained both certifications through internal and external audits.
IATF 16949 is an extension of ISO 9001 as it was built on the same foundation. However, IATF dives deeper into customer specific requirements, focusing on the automotive industry through the International Automotive Task Force (IATF).
