CQI-19 Subtier Supplier Management

Significance and Application of the CQI-19 Guideline

The North American automotive association AIAG (Automotive Industry Action Group) is publisher of the CQI-19 guideline. The CQI-19 describes product and process approval for sub-suppliers. As a long standing member of the AIAG, TopQM-Systems already specialized early on in the introduction, development and qualification of employees according to the content of CQI-19 and its transfer of knowledge, including methods of „best practice“.
The CQI-19 "product and process approval for sub-suppliers" guideline was developed by the AIAG (Automotive Industry Action Group) to define minimum quality requirements for sub-suppliers. It provides details on the identification and inspection of pass-through characteristics (PTC).
