SMMT have been appointed by VDA QMC in Germany to deliver approved VDA 6.3 Process Audit training and qualification modules.

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 ISO9001 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.


This awareness seminar will provide an overview of the structure, content and scoring evaluation systems of VDA 6.3 together with an overview of customer specific requirements in terms of VDA 6.3.

The seminar will be delivered by one of SMMT’s approved VDA trainers.

There will be plenty of opportunities for questions and answers throughout the session. Tea, coffee and lunch will be provided.

Date: 14th November 2012
Time: 10:00am – 1:30pm
Venue: Partnership For Learning, South Road, Halewood, L24 9PZ
