    ISO/TS 16949:2009 introduces no new or changed requirements from ISO/TS 16949:2002. ISO 9001:2008 is based on clarifications or amendments to the existing requirements of ISO 9001:2000 and those that are intended to improve consistency with ISO 14001:2004. This should not make ISO/TS 16949 implementation any more difficult for companies looking to take on this standard.

    Certification Bodies and Organizations are expected to understand and apply the amendments to ISO/TS 16949:2009. Application of the clarifications related to ISO 9001:2008 requirements in the boxed text of ISO/TS 16949:2009 is effective not later than 120 days after the release of ISO/TS 16949:2009.
