The certificate awarded to EFD Induction Germany is the VDA 6.4
Not just anybody can supply German automakers. You first have to prove you’re as devoted to quality control as they are. And one way to prove it is to meet the tough quality control demands set by the German Confederation of Automobile Industries (Verband Der Automobilindustrie, or VDA for short).
Which is what EFD Induction Germany just did. It’s understandable that Roland Riechert, Managing Director of EFD Induction Germany, is proud. Because EFD Induction Germany earlier this year renewed its VDA certification. And to prove it, there’s a copy of the latest VDA certificate hanging on the wall of his office in Freiburg, Germany. “Meeting the requirements necessary for VDA certification is a real achievement,” says Riechert. “ It’s further proof that our quality control procedures are truly worldclass. After all, certification to VDA standard is now demanded by such qualityconscious automakers as the VW and DaimlerChrysler groups.” The certificate awarded to EFD Induction Germany is the VDA 6.4, which applies to production equipment, including product design, for the automotive industry. The VDA 6.4 is divided into two parts. The first part includes checklists and instructions to ensure high levels of management responsibility, internal quality auditing, staff training, product security and strategic business planning. The second part sets equally tough standards for contract control, marketing, product and process development, purchasing, product control, equipment calibration, corrective and/or preventive quality measures, etc.
