What is QS-9000?
QS-9000 is the shorthand name for "Quality System Requirements QS-9000." It is the common supplier
quality standard for DaimlerChrysler Corporation, Ford Motor Company and General Motors Corporation.
QS-9000 is based on the 1994 edition of ISO 9001, but it contains additional requirements that are
particular to the automotive industry. The ISO community of accreditation bodies and registrars
considers these additions automotive “interpretations”. QS-9000 applies to suppliers of production
materials, production and service parts, heat treating, painting and plating and other finishing
services. It does not, therefore, apply to all suppliers of the Big Three.
