Over two-thirds of the world's top ten motor vehicle and parts companies choose LRQA for certification.

As one of the hardest hit industries during the economic crisis, the automotive sector is facing critical challenges:

  • Increased globalization, complexity and risk-prone supply from multiple-tiered suppliers.
  • A need for continuous improvement in management systems, especially those of suppliers.
  • Increased risk of supply chain failures, resulting in stoppages and high financial loss.
  • Increased requirements, expectations and regulations in emissions management, operating structure and post-bankruptcy recovery.
  • Challenging economic, customer and government expectations that require streamlined business processes to increase efficiencies and reduce costs.
  • Tightened credit market and decreased consumer confidence.
  • Demand for cleaner, greener more fuel-efficient cars.
