AIAG Automotive Industry Action Group


The Automotive Industry Action Group is comprised of professionals from a diverse group of automotive retailers, suppliers, automakers, manufacturers, service providers, and other organizations that collaborate to define standards and share knowledge to improve the automotive supply chain.

AIAG manages and publishes standards and educational resources for member organizations to help them maintain compliance with guidelines and standards defiend by AIAG in tandem with automotive manufacturers and quality organizations like ISO.
