The following documents have been
established by the AEC Component Technical Committee to define common
electrical component qualification requirements. These documents contain
detailed qualification and requalification requirements
and include unique test methods and guidelines for the use of generic data.
Components meeting these specifications are suitable for use in the harsh
automotive environment without additional component level qualification
testing. Suppliers may advertise components meeting these specifications
without restrictions, but the specifications cannot be changed without the
approval of the Sustaining Members (currently Autoliv, Bose Corporation, Continental, Cummins, Delphi, Denso International America, Gentex, Harman,
Hella, John Deere Electronic Solutions (Phoenix International), Kostal Automotive, Lear Corporation, Magna Electronics, Sirius XM, Valeo, Visteon and ZF TRW Automotive).

Notice from the AEC Technical Committee: Supplements to TS-16949 are not allowed by the governing body (IATF/IAOB), only customer specifics. The authors of the QS-9000 Semi Supplement modified the document to be fully aligned with the new TS document and published it as ISO/TS-16949: Customer Specific Requirements - Semiconductor Commodity. The AEC did not issue the document as a supplement, but only as a document that was available for anyone to adopt as their customer requirement for semiconductor suppliers. Thus, the AEC posted the document on the website allowing anyone to take it, use it as is, or use it as a starting point for their own customer requirements. While TS16949 is required, the details, including what to do for semiconductors, is left up to each individual user for their specific requirements. The AEC was unable to communize the specific requirements, the document became inactive, and the AEC Technical Committee elected to remove the document from the website.
