AIAG has specified standard audit requirements for special processes -- heat treat, coatings and platings because OEMs and suppliers are experiencing quality issues in these areas which are impacting product performance on parts such as seat belts and steering gears; interior and exterior painted parts.

Developed by automotive manufacturers and suppliers, the guidelines are written for automotive suppliers or any organization performing these processes. Completion of coating, heat treat and plating assessments, as detailed in the guidelines, will assist companies in meeting ISO 9001:2000, ISO/TS 16949:2002 and OEM Customer Specific requirements related to internal audit and effectiveness of the organization's manufacturing special processes.
