Verband der Automobilindustrie

The German Association of the Automotive Industry[1] or VDA (German: Verband der Automobilindustrie e. V.) is a German interest group of the German automobile industry, both automobile manufactures and automobile component suppliers. The group is located in Berlin, Germany. Current president since June 1, 2007 is the former federal minister of transport Matthias Wissmann.

The VDA hosts the world's largest motor show, the biannual Internationale Automobilausstellung (IAA) in Frankfurt.

The VDA published a series of standards and recommendations. Among those is the German Quality Management System (QMS) for the automobile industry. The fourth edition was issued in December 1998, and became mandatory for all German car makers on April 1, 1999.
