TE 9000 Tooling and Equipment Quality System Requirements

TE-9000 (Quality System Requirements Tooling & Equipment), referred to as TE supplement, was developed by Chrysler, Ford General Motors Tooling and Equipment representatives, and Riviera Die & Tool.

The TE supplement defines the fundamental quality system expectations of Chrysler, Ford, General Motors and other companies for suppliers of tooling and equipment. These companies are committed to working with suppliers to ensure customer satisfaction beginning with conformance to quality requirements and continuing with reduction of variation and waste to benefit the final customer, the supply base and themselves.

The TE supplement shall be used with QS-9000 as one document for the Tooling and Equipment industry.

TE-9000 registration and surveillance audits can be combined or integrated with ISO 14001 and other management system standards.
