    SMMT has been appointed by VDA QMC in Germany to delivery approved VDA 6.3 Process Audit training and qualification modules,

    29th – 31st January 2013

    To be held at Partnership for Learning,
    South Road, Halewood, Liverpool
    Delivered by SMMT Industry Forum

    Developed by the German Automotive industry, VDA 6.3 defines a process-based audit standard for evaluating and improving controls in a manufacturing organisation’s new product introduction and manufacturing processes. Revised in 2010, the standard was comprehensively restructured to reflect the changes to ISO 9001 and customer specific requirements in the automotive industry.

    The standard can be used by any organisation, either for internal process audits, or for evaluating potential or existing suppliers.

    Compliance to VDA 6.3 is mandated by some vehicle makers and encouraged by others, in particular the German automotive industry.

    Who should attend?

    The 3 day course is designed for delegates working in the automotive supply chain, including those working in design, engineering, purchasing, logistics, quality and manufacturing who have proven management system auditing experience.
