According to the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and the ISO Committee on Conformity Assessment (CASCO), the transition period for the revision of ISO 9001 has been set to three years from the publication date of ISO 9001:2015. As ISO 9001:2008 forms the basis for the ISO/TS 16949:2009 standard, the expiry date of certificates to ISO/TS 16949:2009 haveto correspond to the end of the three year transition period for ISO 9001:2008 certificates. The end of the three year transition period for ISO 9001 is set to the 14 September 2018(based on the official release date of ISO 9001:2015). The IATF Database will be modified accordingly on Sunday, 4th October 2015 to reflect this maximum expiration date for ISO/TS 16949:2009 certificates. The update will automatically set the expiration date to the 14 September 2018. The certificates have to reflect this new expiration date as well. All certificates being already issued with an expiration date beyond the 14 September 2018 have to be revised and updated accordingly. A Rules 4th Edition SI to officially inform all interested parties, will be released on the IATF Global Oversight website.
