Advertising Your IATF 16949 Registration

Once you’ve reached your IATF 16949 Certification you should feel proud of accomplishing something great. It is quite a project to undertake and complete. So now what? It is time to advertise that you have become certified to IATF 16949:2016 but first let’s go over the rules, and then we have some items to advertise your grant accomplishment.

Celebrate and Promote your Certification

Once you’ve successfully registered your organization to IATF 16949 you will want to promote this to your customers, vendors, and employees.

The only use of the IATF logo related to this certification scheme is as displayed on the certificate issued by the certification body.

Any other use of the IATF logo, separately or not, is prohibited.

  • Don’t use the IATF logo or say you are “IATF Certified” – IATF didn’t certify you, your Registrar did.
  • Your Registrar (CB or Certification Body) can provide you with a logo. This logo will typically show the certification date, standard, and length
  • Use the full designation “IATF 16949:2016” not just “IATF 16949“.
  • Don’t display IATF certification marks of conformity on products, product labels, or product packaging, or in any way that may be interpreted as denoting product conformity.
