intacs trainings can be carried out online

Appointments for trainings of Automotive SPICE assessors came to a complete standstill in the corona crisis and it is not foreseeable for anyone involved how many months this will take.

In a letter from March 24, 2020, the intacs Executive Board proposed to the VDA based on the Covid-19 pandemic that training courses for  Provisional Assessors and VDA Guidelines should be held online immediately. The VDA management agreed to this and wished a successful implementation. Intacs and the VDA experts have now to create a procedure for a practical and safe solution for how training courses and exams can be carried out online. This procedure is limited to October, 31st, 2020.

For companies wanting to develop or expand their assessment competence, we avoid further delays. Future assessors can use the time in the home office for developing know-how. We will inform about the further progress of the implementation and wish everyone involved good success!



intacs Information Letter January 2020

Dear intacs members, SPICE assessors and friends of intacs!

At the beginning of the new decade, we are pleased to share with you some news that will help you to continue your passion for quality processes.

We have introduced several intacs™ ADD-ONs as valuable extensions for Automotive SPICE®. We will present this new content to the VDA QMC and coordinate its use with our colleagues. These are new additions or application aids for existing models that are supported by intacs™ and are used according to the existing or new rules. We recommend piloting these new intacs™ ADD-ONs and giving us feedback.

We wish you an enjoyable reading and all the best for the year 2020! 

Christian Knüvener, Dr Ganji Rajesh,
