National and International Certifications


Tecnofor’s qualitative standard is guaranteed by the sector’s technical and quality certifications. Not only are employees taught the work method through technical training initiatives, but they learn to analyse the “mentality” of the automotive world, translating into a meticulously studied approach that allows Tecnofor to successfully insert itself within this specific market. Our portfolio of national and international certificates ensures proper monitoring of our machining operations, in full respect of the environment and of employees rights, confirming Tecnofor’s ability to offer clients continuity not only as a company but also when it comes to supplying products and services.




In 2020 Tecnofor obtained the ISO 14001 certification which testifies to the company’s readiness to reduce the “footprint” of its production, monitoring its impacts and setting specific objectives for improvement. We envision a future that believes in the uniqueness of individuals and the environment. Continuous innovation and sustainability are inalienable values that go hand in hand with one another: a virtuous process, based on measuring our impact and seeking to reduce it, which we translate into concrete actions: for example, a 34% reduction in the consumption of energy per Kg of processed material between 2018 and 2020.

ISO/TS 16949 is a specific quality standard defined by the ISO and related to the application of the more general ISO 9000 standards in the automotive sector, standards that are wanted and supported by car manufacturers. In Italy, this standard was received and translated by UNI (Italian National Unification Body) and issued as UNI ISO/TS 16949. It expired in 2016 and was replaced by the first edition of IATF 16949. The standard contains all of ISO 9001, with the inclusion of additional and more stringent requirements that must be met in order to obtain the certification. The primary differences/additions concern:


  • A more client-centric vision;
  • An emphasis on continuous improvement through the prevention of defects and a reduction in variability and losses in the supply chain (application of the six sigma method is very useful);
  • The need to ensure monitoring of outsourced processes as well;
  • The drafting of an FMEA for the critical phases of the process;
  • The need for the end client’s approval of all system and documentary modifications that could affect the quality of the finished product;
  • A greater focus on the training/development of personnel, with additional requirements related to employee motivation and accountability;
  • The drafting of an emergency plan which meets clients’ requirements (quality, delivery times…) also in the event that service is interrupted (strikes, malfunctions…);



  • The only admissible exclusion, if adequately motivated, is Design and Development, clause 7.3 (while ISO 9001 allows for the exclusion of all of clause 7, related to the manufacture of the product);
  • The subdivision between Product Design and Process Design;
  • The need to draft a control plan for the product and process;
  • Stringent requirements regarding the internal lab and any eventual external labs, with not-always-binding reference to the accreditation according to ISO/IEC 17025 (regardless an MSA–Measurement System Analysis is recommended/almost mandatory);
  • The application of a “Just in Time” production system.

ISO 9001:2015

QUALITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM CERTIFICATION by Swiss Association for Quality and Management Systems (SQS)


The UNI EN ISO 9001:2015 standard for quality management systems, conceived for High-Level Structures, requires that the organisation analyse its internal and external context and all of the applicable requisites in order to understand and identify relevant factors that could conceal either threats or opportunities for its business.

One of the primary objectives of a management system is to serve as a preventative tool. In the new regulatory framework, the concept of preventative action is in fact incorporated in an approach based on the evaluation of risk, which is an integral part of the management system.
