2. What training is offered at GAB?
Much has remained the same. As with the release of the 2016 version, an update training from version VDA 6.3:2016 to VDA:2023 is available:
ID 333 - VDA 6.3:2016 to VDA 6.3:2023 Upgrade Training
This upgrade training covers the alterations to VDA 6.3 (2016 edition) including updates to the questionnaire, changes to the evaluation, changes to the potential analysis and other adjustments.
The new volume VDA6.3 2023 contains many examples on software topics. A Software Essentials training course will be offered on these concepts, but also so that auditors can better understand the topic of software development / auditing. The VDA name and ID as well as the publication date have not yet been determined.
Software Essential for VDA 6.3:2023 Auditors
It is a challenge for you to understand embedded software parts of the VDA 2 annex, SW related maturity Level assessment or the new VDA 6.3:2023 version?
We explain you the process of a software development, the basic terms and the challenges.
Of course, the basic training must not be missing in the overview. This now has a new name: ID 381 VDA 6.3:2023 - Process Auditor - Qualification
The basic training has also been completely revised didactically. We can not reveal all, but small secrets at this point:
The audit management part was omitted because it is already included in the ISO 19011 training. This has provided a lot of time to go into the process audit in more detail and to train more elements in the exercises.
ID 381 - VDA 6.3:2023 – Process Auditor – Qualification- Training
This training qualifies you for process audits according to VDA 6.3 2023 and explain the VDA 6.3 requirements with practical approach.
The examination must not be missing either. The new name is ID 382 VDA 6.3:2023 Process Auditor Examination.
Like the training, the exam has been completely revised and is conducted exclusively as an oral exam in an audit simulation.
Completely new and certainly very interesting: The exam can now be done online.
This also contributes to sustainability because travel times can be avoided.
ID 382 - VDA 6.3:2023 – Examination for Certified Process Auditor
You will be certified that, as a VDA 6.3 auditor, you are able and authorized to independently conduct process audits internally and at the premises of your suppliers

3. What is new in the validity of the auditors' certificates?
What is new in the validity of the auditors' certificates?
The most significant change is the validity of the VDA6.3 2023 Process Auditor certificate.
For many years we were used to a validity of 3 years. With the new version, this has been extended to 5 years.
All those who already have a VDA 6.3 process auditor certificate must renew within the 3-year period and will then receive a new VDA 6.3 certificate with a validity of 5 years.

4. What is new in the version VDA 6.3:2023 to VDA 6.3:2016?
The VDA 6.3 process audit is a globally recognized standard that has been translated into 16 languages and is used by more than 75,000 certified VDA auditors.
- Checking the validity of the contents
- Focus on the process elements P2-P7
- Review potential analysis P1
- Strengthening the supply chains
- Revision of all elements
Changes in the structure
Aim of the alignment of the new VDA 6.3 2023 with other standards
- When conducting a VDA 6.3 process audit, the requirements of other standards will also be discussed during the audit meeting. To ensure that the focus of the process audit is not lost, the foreword clarifies which standards are not part of the VDA 6.3 process audit.
- In some VDA standards (e.g. maturity level management RGA, product and process release VDA 2, ...) the same contents were used with different designations. The goal of the new VDA 6.3 was to harmonize these names.
- The dovetailing of all VDA standards is elementary. In order to strengthen this, the requirements were harmonized. Duplicate requirements were reduced where possible.
We will be adding more content to this website in the coming weeks.
