Automotive supplier self-assessments CQI 9, CQI 11 & CQI 12 for heat treating, plating, and coating

Wednesday, March 11th, 2009

Many smaller plating, heat treating and special coating companies have asked us about the requests they get from their automotive customers regarding self assessments. These are the CQI publications that are published by the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG). These are part of GM, Ford, and Chrysler ISO/TS 16949 customer-specific requirements and they apply to heat treating, plating, and coating suppliers. These are process self-assessments and the documents can be purchased through the AIAG.org website.

The CQIs for these processes are:
CQI-9 – AIAG Assessment Manual for Heating Treating
CQI-11 – AIAG Assessment Manual for Plating Processes
CQI-12 – AIAG Assessment manual for Coating Processes

If you need assistance with any of these assessments, contact the experts at G3 Solutions. Visit our full website at www.g3iso.com today!
