Waypoint Global is proud to introduce the release of the content-rich Template Pack for IATF 16949 : 2016 automotive quality management system standard to assist relevant organizations in reaching and/or maintaining conformance to this international standard. According to the foreword “IATF 16949 : 2016, along with applicable automotive customer-specific requirements, ISO 9001 : 2015 requirements, and ISO 9000 : 2015 defines the fundamental quality management system requirements for automotive production and relevant service parts organizations.”

Objectives include:

  • An organization needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
  • An organization aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.

The requirements of IATF 16949 : 2016 are much more prescriptive than ISO 9001 : 2015 and are intended to be applicable to any organization involved in providing parts, components or assemblies for, or the production of, automobiles and light trucks. This template pack will install alongside existing template packs which allows an orderly conversion to the new standard. It contains content and document templates for Audit Manager and the authoring tools. Procedure Writer and Instruction Writer both contain functionality for updating existing procedures and instructions for this new standard.

Waypoint Global is proud to introduce the release of the structure only Template Pack for ISO 13485 : 2016 management system standard to assist any organization in reaching and/or maintaining conformance to this international standard.

ISO 13485:2016 specifies requirements for a quality management system where an organization needs to demonstrate its ability to provide medical devices and related services that consistently meet customer and applicable regulatory requirements. Such organizations can be involved in one or more stages of the life-cycle, including design and development, production, storage and distribution, installation, or servicing of a medical device and design and development or provision of associated activities (e.g. technical support). ISO 13485:2016 can also be used by suppliers or external parties that provide product, including quality management system-related services to such organizations. Requirements of ISO 13485:2016 are applicable to organizations regardless of their size and regardless of their type except where explicitly stated. Wherever requirements are specified as applying to medical devices, the requirements apply equally to associated services as supplied by the organization.

The processes required by ISO 13485:2016 that are applicable to the organization, but are not performed by the organization, are the responsibility of the organization and are accounted for in the organization's quality management system by monitoring, maintaining, and controlling the processes.

This standard includes ISO 9001:2015 quality management system requirements and specifies additional aviation, space, and defense industry requirements, definitions, and notes.

Template Pack - ISO 14001 : 2015

Waypoint Global is proud to introduce the release of the content-rich Template Pack for ISO 14001 : 2015 management system standard to assist any organization in reaching and/or maintaining conformance to this international standard. ISO 14001:2015 specifies the requirements for an environmental management system that an organization can use to enhance its environmental performance. ISO 14001:2015 is intended for use by an organization seeking to manage its environmental responsibilities in a systematic manner that contributes to the environmental pillar of sustainability. ISO 14001:2015 helps an organization achieve the intended outcomes of its environmental management system, which provide value for the environment, the organization itself and interested parties. Consistent with the organization's environmental policy, the intended outcomes of an environmental management system include:

  • enhancement of environmental performance;
  • fulfillment of compliance obligations;
  • achievement of environmental objectives.

ISO 14001:2015 is applicable to any organization, regardless of size, type and nature, and applies to the environmental aspects of its activities, products and services that the organization determines it can either control or influence considering a life cycle perspective. ISO 14001:2015 does not state specific environmental performance criteria. ISO 14001:2015 can be used in whole or in part to systematically improve environmental management. Claims of conformity to ISO 14001:2015, however, are not acceptable unless all its requirements are incorporated into an organization's environmental management system and fulfilled without exclusion. This template pack will install alongside your existing template packs which allows an orderly conversion to the new standard. It contains content and document templates for Audit Manager and the authoring tools. Procedure Writer and Instruction Writer both contain functionality for updating existing procedures and instructions for this new standard.

NOTE: For those that wish to plan and measure the impact of this new standard can use the ISO 14001 : 2015 Gap Analysis Pack that is available for download from: http://www.waypointglobal.com. You can use this Gap Analysis Pack to help your organization prepare for this updated standard.

Help Files

Versions of Windows since Windows 7 do not support the 32-bit help file format used in the Waypoint Global Suite.
Microsoft has posted on their web site a Knowledge Base article download that will allow Windows to read 32-bit help files.
I cannot open Help files that require the Windows Help (WinHlp32.exe) program.
Now, Microsoft has decided to no longer support the 32-bit help system with Windows 10.
We have developed an installer for the Help system that can be used to install on Windows 10. Download
Note: When this is installed it must be done with elevated administrator privileges.

Operating System Support
  • Windows Server 2016 has been added to the list of supported server operating systems.
    The Sybase database engine is not supported for Windows Server 2016.
    In certain conditions we recommend using SQL Server Express as a minimal cost alternative.
