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.
