CitreColor srl is a certified painting IATF 16949 (extension of the ISO 9001 standard), which replaces the previous ISO TS 16949 standard.

We believe this is a very important result as it is not common to achieve this important goal in the composite painting sector. Being IATF 16949 certified carbon painting means being included in the worldwide database intended exclusively for OEM “Original Equipment Manufacturer”, so each parent company can know the certification status of all supplier companies, in the interest of giving value to the finished product.
The IATF 16949: 2016 Certification is required by the main US and European vehicle manufacturers to their suppliers of products intended to be installed on vehicles and allows to have a single international reference, to overcome multiple certifications and to reduce the audits of part two by OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) manufacturers.
For OEMs, the IATF 16949 certification is an important selection requirement, so much so that they can check the update status by accessing a worldwide database in which IATF 16949 certified automotive companies are entered.
