Read on to learn more about the ISO 9001:2015 certification and what choosing plastics manufacturers that hold this certification can mean for your investment.
WHAT IS THE ISO 9001:2015 CERTIFICATION?
The ISO 9001:2015 certification is an international standard that specifies certain requirements that a business must satisfy within their quality management system (QMS). This certification is based on the plan-do-check-act methodology and ensures that we provide and follow our process-oriented approach. To achieve high quality management standards, our certification supports our structure, responsibilities, and procedures.
WHAT DOES THE ISO 9001:2015 CERTIFICATION REQUIRE?
To earn the ISO 9001:2015 certification, plastic manufacturers like us must satisfy the following:
- Our management is committed, involved, focused and responsive
- Our company meets customer requirements, along with statutory and regulatory requirements
- Our processes are visible, traceable, consistent, repeatable, measurable, and documentable
- Our documents are appropriate, relevant, simple, understandable, and consistent with processes in use
To prove alignment with ISO 9001 standards, we demonstrated that we met these and other requirements related to our commitment to quality, environmental responsibility, and our customers.
