I have put together the list of standards which are applicable for different industries. Although there is a huge list, we have added few things which are adopted by major industries.
|Standard||Industry||Standard Prepared by and controlled by|
|ISO/TS16949:2009||Automotive||International Automotive Task Force (IATF)|
|ISO/AS 9100 Rev C||Aerospace||IAQG|
|ISO 22000 : 2012||Food Industry||ISO|
|ISO/TS 29001:2010||Petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industries||ISO|
In addition to these there are many other international standards which are industry specific, which are not listed above. However, these are not so popular as the ones listed above.
The OEMs in these industries insist that the suppliers be certified to or at least complaint to the industry specific standards. This will help reduce the pressure on these companies for supplier inspections rigor. This will also help the suppliers to reduce the number of audits faced. This way the cost of audit on both the supplier and the OEM are reduced.
