UK instrument manufacturer, Evolution Measurement, is celebrating successfully having their BSI Quality Management System – ISO 9001:2015 accredited during a period when much of the UK was in lockdown.
Work for the accreditation has been ongoing since October last year, but production manager, Mark Adams, finalized the process with the BSI auditors using an all-day remote video call during which they were able to audit and validate the processes in use.
ISO 9001:2015 specifies the requirements for a Quality Management System when an organization needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, and aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
“This is a momentous day for our businesses, having successfully completed our ISO9001:2015 certification,” Paul Crowhurst, managing director, said. “This is not an easy thing to accomplish, the demands in the 2015 edition are much more stringent and demanding than the earlier 2008 edition. To achieve it first time is also a great feat especially in the current circumstances.”
