Why Automotive PCB board need over and above the ISO requires?
In terms of quality management systems, here is my ranking of the international standards as measured by requirements and the level of discipline required to meet them. In order of increasing degree of difficulty: ISO9001, ISO13485, AS9100, IATF 16949. What follows is an outline of some of the major requirements that are over and above what ISO requires.
All Automotive PCB Boards Must Meet Customer-Specific Requirements
This requirement specifically addresses the need to evaluate your customer-specific requirements and include them where applicable in the quality management system. This means that a process is needed to evaluate each customer’s “customer-specific requirements” and integrate them into your QMS.
The Safety of Automotive PCB Boards
These are enhanced requirements that re-quire a process for proactive awareness and mitigation of current and emerging product and process safety issues facing the automotive industry. This includes a focus on statutory and regulatory requirements to identify and control product-safety-related characteristics during design (if applicable) and manufacturing including defining responsibilities, escala-tion processes, reaction plans.
