Oct. 7 2021

We are proud to mention that in October 2021, Bureau Veritas Certification was announced Gold finalist in IAOB ‘s Certification Body of the year-ranking 2021, at an ex-aequo with two more certification bodies.  IAOB congratulated us on our high-performance standards in place to meet IATF and IAOB expectations and highlighted our hard work and dedication to continual improvement in the processes that are critical to support the automotive scheme and third-party IATF 16949:2016 certification. 

Worldwide there are 40 certification bodies who are approved by IATF to perform IATF 16949-certification. Out of those 40 CB’s, 20 are under IAOB ‘s oversight, the International Automotive Oversight Bureau.

As a reference, in terms of IATF 16949 certified suppliers affected by the red supplier process, 22,35% of the sites certified by Bureau Veritas Certification are supplying to GM, Ford or PSA hence subject to the red supplier process. Only 10,44 % of these sites or 2,33 % of all sites certified by Bureau Veritas Certification have been affected by the Red Supplier Process, making Bureau Veritas Certification one of the certification bodies having the lowest portion of suppliers entering into the red supplier process, out of all 20 Certification Bodies under IAOB oversight.
