Management System Audits (QMS, MSS)

Management System Audits (QMS, MSS)


It is an expectation in all industrial supply chains that at minimum, the Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers have some manner of 3rd Party Certification by industrial specific Quality Management System model. 


Some typical Quality Management Systems (QMS) may include: 

  • ISO 9001 (General Manufacturing and Services)
  • IATF 16949 or VDA6.1 (Automotive) 
  • AS/EN 9100 (Aerospace) 
  • ISO 13485 (Medical Devices) 


Further internal or external expectations could include complying with other Management System requirements. A few examples of other “non-quality” Management Systems (MSS) may include:

  • ISO 14001 (Environmental - EMS) 
  • ISO 50001 (Energy - EnMS)
  • ISO 45001 (Occupational Health and Safety - OH&S)  
  • ISO/IEC 27001 (Information Security - ISMS)
