The CQI-17 EAM SSA (Electronic Assembly Manufacturing-Soldering System Assessment) was revised by the AIAG CQI-17 Working Group and officially published on September 14th, 2021.
The North American automotive association AIAG (Automotive Industry Action Group) is publisher
of the CQI standards (Continuous Quality Improvement). CQI-17 is a self-assessment regarding
the soldering processes and must be carried out at least once a year.
This standard is an appendix to IATF 16949 under „customer-specific requirements“ and is valid
for all automotive suppliers globally that have entered into a contractual agreement regarding purchasing, supply and quality throughout the supply chain.
As a long standing member of the AIAG, TopQM-Systems already specialized early on in the introduction, development and qualification of employees, as well as auditor training according to the rules of the AIAG for CQI-17 soldering processes in the European and global automotive supplier markets.
