Corporate Standards

Standardization is about reaching consensus on and documenting common solutions to recurring situations. Standardization increases efficiency and delivers commonality, the right quality, and economies of scale to all stakeholders.


Corporate Standards is the department at Volvo that is responsible for developing, publishing and distributing Volvo Group standards.

Volvo Group standards are often referred to in technical documentation and are thereby legally binding contractual documents between Volvo Group companies and their suppliers.

The Corporate Standards department is also responsible for documentation of standard parts. Another field of responsibility is to coordinate Volvo's external standardization activities.

Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) forms

Here you will find the link to the FMEA form presented in our Volvo standard STD 105-0005. This is a basic form, which can be used for both Design FMEA and Process FMEA. Depending on how the FMEA form is used in the different Business Areas/Business Units in the Volvo Group, it may be necessary to adjust the layout and contents slightly.

In connection with purchasing, several BAs/BUs refer to ISO/TS 16949 and to documents issued by AIAG (Automotive Industry Action Group), which also include descriptions of the FMEA method. In such cases, it is also possible to find FMEA forms via ISO/TS 16949 and AIAG.
