PG VCS, comprising experts from global automotive OEMs, Tier-1 system suppliers and engineering and software development providers, is formed to create and establish a third-party management system audit scheme to evaluate the CSMS of suppliers. The audit catalogue, developed as part of the audit scheme VCS, implements the audit guidelines of the ISO/PAS 5112 in the context of the ISO/SAE 21434 and the generic management system structure as defined in Annex SL of ISO/IEC directives.
Feasibility of the audit scheme is verified through piloting audit activities across a representative sample of suppliers in the automotive supply chain. Upon proof of feasibility, the project group transforms into a working group to work on continuous improvement and maintenance of the audit scheme.
The work of the PG VCS is intended to create an audit scheme that provides standardised, comparable and customer-independent results and reduces compliance efforts and costs for customers and suppliers alike.
