Quality System Requirements

DAVCO requires our suppliers to obtain third party registration to the current version of ISO14001 and strongly encourages all of our suppliers to develop a quality system that meets the requirements of the current version of ISO14001/TS16949.

This manual as well as the ISO14001/TS16949 specification reference a number of documents as complements. These include an SPC manual, the Advanced Project Quality Planning (APQP) and Control Plan manual, the Measurement Systems Analysis manual and the Production Part Approval Process manual.

These documents are available through the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG). Their web site address is

We urge our suppliers to obtain each of these for use in developing a robust quality system and in complying with our requirements.

Suppliers, or potential suppliers, whose Quality Management System is not currently third party registered, must:

  • Prepare a plan (including a timeline) for becoming registered within two years
  • Agree to allow DAVCO to perform on-site quality system audits at least annually.
